Chester County Chippendale Spice Box on Frame

 

Ca. 1750    

 

  • 42.5" high, 21" wide,  19.5 deep

  • This is a unique piece I designed using Chippendale features, such as Philadelphia style ball & claw feet, shell carvings, and cabriole legs.    The base is similar to an ornate Philadelphia Chippendale stool or chair.

  • The frame and panel door has a lunette panel that is rarely seen in the originals.

  • Curly cherry drawer fronts.

  • William and Mary hardware hand forged in England.

  •  All my spice boxes feature secret hiding places, but there are 14 secret compartments in this piece!  A few are pictured here; I dare my customers to find them. 

  • 14 visible drawers plus 14 more hidden drawers.

  •  

  • $  26,500

  • This piece took 6 months to build.
