MINIATURE AMERICAN FEDERAL INLAID MAHOGANY SPICE CHEST, Massachusetts c. 1805-15

Item # 209UQR12P

This is a beautiful miniature chest of drawers that probably originates from along the North Shore in Massachusetts c. 1805-15. With a well preserved old surface under a later polishing, the overall character of the oxidized and dark finish against the fine ribbed mahogany grains of the chest is compelling to say the least. The projecting top is a solid board with an ovular inlaid basket overflowing of oak-leafage with other foliage over an ebonized ground. The sides of the case dovetail into the floor of the chest and are nailed to the top, stretched against the three drawer blades that tenon into either side of the case. The face of the chest is a perfectly graduated set of four drawers, each with a pair of original carved knobs over a ribbed mahogany facade, each dovetailed front and back with a white pine bottom, chamfered around the edges along the underside. The chest rests over turned and round rosewood bun feet that tenon through and into the bottom of the chest.

A wonderful find for any serious collector of period antique miniature furniture.
