PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT AMERICAN COLLECTOR
This remarkable high chest-of-drawers is perhaps one of the most elaborate and fully developed Queen Anne example made in the Delaware Valley. With its superbly carved shells and sunflowers, it has only two known counterparts, both of which closely follow its basic design. One is illustrated by Jack L. Lindsey in Worldly Goods, The Arts of Early Pennsylvania, 1680-1758, (Philadelphia: Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1999), pp. 68-9, 143, fig. 93, no. 40, and a second was sold at Christie's, New York, Important American Furniture, Silver, Prints and Folk Art, October 9, 2002, sale 1129, lot 239 and sold for $119, 500. Another high chest in a private collection and illustrated in Christopher P. Monkhouse and Thomas S. Michie, American Furniture in Pendleton House, (Providence, RI: Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, 1986), p. 29, fig. 33 exhibits a number of design similarities.
