Product Description

We are pleased to be offering today this gorgeous and unbelievably rare empire period acanthus carved federal style tall chest in a very rare form that dates from the 1850's-1860's. This particular chest came out of a Massachusetts estate and it was dark and grungy.  We decided to hand strip, hand sand, hand stain and hand rub multiple coats of satin sheen lacquer applied.  It consists of two curve front drawers on the top and five large drawers underneath.  The drawers are all hand dove tail and flame mahogany face.  The posts are solid mahogany and acanthus carved.  It has a gadroon or rope molded edge on top.  The base has a claw foot hairy foot.  It has been finished in the dark reddish brown stain lacquer.  The overall size is 43 inches wide, 22 inches deep and 61 inches tall.  I believe the wooden knobs are original and definitely match up to it.  The back is hand planed boards and the sides are mahogany which is very unusual as usually it is a secondary wood like poplar.  It is in stunning condition and is all set to go into the home.  I dare you to find another one like this especially at this rock bottom price to be enjoyed for years of carefree enjoyment.
