A Boston area lowboy design From the William and Mary era with trumpet-turned legs and ball feet. The curved cross-stretchers are also rounded in cross section and sport a finial at the center. The case has a boldly shaped apron and two more pendant drops. The drawer openings are surrounded with double arch moldings and the pulls are brass drops.
Structurally, it has a pegged mortise-and-tenoned case with dovetailed drawers. It is shown in an ebonized finish on maple, but it may also be japanned or made in figured maple or walnut.
