Connecticut Scalloped-Top Lowboy
cherry, 31"h, 38"w, 23"d     currently available in figured cherry    

A design from the Connecticut River Valley of Massachusetts with a boldly scalloped top. The center drawer features a deeply carved and precisely detailed fan carving. The apron is gracefully curved and flows into the pad-foot cabriole legs. If it looks familiar it is because the original is the cover piece on Greene's American Furniture of the 18th Century.

Being a Connecticut River Valley piece, the case is of mortise-and-tenon joinery with dovetailed drawers.
