Greene · Newport
The block-front style is not known to have made its way onto lowboys in Newport, but it did in Boston, where the style was first employed in the colonies. This Boston design carries the blocking the full height of the case, from the apron through the top.
In addition to the drawer fronts, the case sides and top have bookmatched walnut burl surfaces with cross-banded surrounds and checkerboard string inlays. The combination of the form and the surface give this a remarkably powerful presence in a compact package.
