EARLY 18TH CENTURY WILLIAM & MARY PERIOD BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS ANTIQUE MAHOGANY HIGHBOY
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
With our highest compliments we're pleased to offer for sale this absolutely wonderful 18th century William & Mary herringbone inlay flat top highboy on a complex 6 legged tapered trumpet leg base. This is a desirable 2 over 3 classic Boston format. Each drawer is decorated with herringbone inlay and cock bead molded faces. The hand cut brass teardrop pulls and escutcheon plates are old and correct. The base is admittedly our favorite component of this piece especially the tapered trumpet legs and the Gothic style cut outs further accented with cock bead molding. We note the mid molding has been replaced, it's very well done in the correct fashion. Remnants of the original paper liner can be seen on the top. Numerous similar examples can be seen in countless institutions across the US. The Winterthur Museum possess one of the finest furniture collections in the world and has a very user friendly interface for those looking to learn more. This highboy is 40" wide x 20" deep x 63 1/2" tall.
