This chest is one of a significant group of joined furniture made in and around Newbury, Massachusetts in the late 17th and very early 18th century.  All chests from this group have a large, ornately turned maple half-column secured to each of the front stiles, while the inner muntins have pairs of smaller maple half-columns, all of which have been ebonized.  When original, all have a single pine board top secured to the case with hinges formed from the top’s oak cleats. Their drawers are either ornamented with applied moldings or in a few instances simply delineated with paint. When dated, they range from 1693 to 1702.  The most intriguing aspect of these chests is the tartan paint decoration on the front panels. Nearly all of the chests have this attribute. The joiner laid out the pattern with scribe lines and generally the vertical lines alternate between red and black while the horizontal lines are all red.

The best-preserved example of the group is in the collection of the The American Museum at Claverton Manor in Britain and is illustrated in Victor Chinnery, Oak Furniture: The British Tradition: A History of Early Furniture in the British Isles and New England (Woodbridge, England: Antique Collectors' Club, 1979), p. 225, pl. 9. Other examples from the group are in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (acc. no. 37.91), the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (with half-column applied to panels) (acc. no. 1926.308), and Connecticut Landmarks (see Richard H. Randall, Jr., American Furniture in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, (Boston, MA: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 1965), pp. 14-5, no. 12; Wallace Nutting, Furniture Treasury, (New York: MacMillan Co., 1928), no. 451; “Recent Acquisitions: The Clark Collection,” The Decorative Arts Society Newsletter, December 1982). Several others are in private collections (see Irving P. Lyon, M.D., "The Oak Furniture of Ipswich, Massachusetts, Part V. Small-Panel-Type Affiliates," Magazine Antiques, June 1938, fig. 46 and 47 (MK 1699); “Made in New England: Furniture from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert B. Newton,” Antiques Magazine, July 1944, p. 26, fig. 2 (AB 1701); Peter Benes, Old-Town and the Waterside: Two Hundred Years of Tradition and Change in Newbury, Newburyport, and West Newbury, 1635-1835, (Newburyport, MA: Historical Society of Old Newbury, 1986), p. 36., no. 8; Christie’s, New York, Fine Americana, January 1979, lot 296; Sotheby’s, New York, Important Americana, January 23, 2005, sale 8053, lot 1123, an unpublished example is dated 1701 initial CD and another dated 1702).
