Executed in solid and beautifully figured mahogany, the present chest combines the highly stylized designs of Chippendale's Director with good quality carving and materials. The form is based on two designs by Thomas Chippendale found in his Director of 1762, No CXXVII and CXXVIII. The molding to the case and overall form is most closely related to the first plate, and the foot or leg is identical to the one of the next plate. The feet also relate to those on a giltwood stand made to fit a chest of drawers attributed to Chippendale at Badminton House, illustrated in Macquoid and Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture, rev. ed., Woodbridge, 1983, vol. II, p. 47, fig. 44.
