This remarkable chest is one of a group of four known related examples. One is in the collection of Shelburne Museum (acc. no. 3.4-19), another is in the Jones River Village Historical Society, Bradford House, Kingston, Massachusetts, and the third is in a private collection. All have the characteristic Plymouth County serrated edge molding used on joined oak chests from the region. This chest survives in remarkable nearly untouched condition. It retains the original black and vermilion paint that was used to further decorate the chest’s façade and to complement the serrated moldings and compass decoration. 

This group of chests has been attributed to Joseph Tilden (1657-1712) due to the descent of a related chest through the Tilden family, now in the Scituate Historical Society (see Robert Blair St. George, The Wrought Covenant: Source Material for the Study of Craftsmen and Community in Southeastern New England, 1620-1700, (Brockton, MA: Brockton Art Center-Fuller Memorial, 1979),  p. 40, no. 24). The currently offered lot is carved with the initials MT.  Possible candidates for the original owner are Mary Tilden (1668-1740), who married James Thomas (b. 1663) in 1692, or Mercy Tilden (1674–1745), who married Benjamin Stockbridge (1677–1725) in 1701.  A miniature six-board chest in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (acc. no. 1981.364) also has the characteristic serrated carving on its lid and related scratch decoration on its façade. For additional information on this group of chests see Brian Cullity, A Cubberd, Four Joyne Stools & Other Smalle Things: The Material Culture of Plymouth Colony (Sandwich, MA: Heritage Plantation, 1994), pp. 113-4, 147-9, nos. 155,156 (note images reversed)
