Early Nineteenth Century Sheraton Seven Drawer Mahogany Gentlemen's Chest in the New York/Connecticut style having all the original brasses with ring pulls and brass escutcheons. The flame mahogany veneers are highly figured making quite a statement. All drawers are constructed with hand cut dovetail joinery and slide nicely. The legs feature ring turnings with dramatic curves to the feet. There are some minor chips to the veneer on the stiles (pictured) but that in no way takes away from how stunning this piece is.
48h x 44w x 21d. Sheraton-influenced furniture dates from about 1790 through 1820. It is named for the famed London, England furniture designer and teacher Thomas Sheraton (1751 to 1806), who trained as a cabinetmaker. He is very well known for his written guides, especially his first, The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing-Book, published 1791-94. A neoclassic style, Sheraton design falls within the Federal period in the United States.
