This Boston high chest exhibits a very rare characteristic of having C-scrolls carved behind it's knees. While this attribute can found on contemporaneous Boston chairs and games tables, it is rarely found on high chests.  A very similar high chest with larger proportions is illustrated in Albert Sack’s The New Fine Points of Furniture Early American, (New York: Crown Publishers, Inc., 1993), p. 194. Another related high chest, albeit without having ‘waisted’ brass, was advertised by Israel Sack, Inc., advertisement Magazine Antiques, 137:5 (May 1990) inside cover.
