Store Item: Kittinger Williamsburg Collection Mahogany Serpentine Chest CW 176. Description: A particularly nice refinement of the Serpentine Chest is the hand carved Chinese fretwork that replaces the usual reeded quarter-round pilasters in the canted corners.
Note also how the shape of both the top and the feet conform to the graceful lines of the facade. Although experts attribute similar chests to the craftsmanship of Jonathan Gostelowe, research now reveals that a number of cabinetmakers produced this elegant form. Family tradition suggests the original Blackwell Serpentine Chest descended through the Stryker and Blackwell families of Germantown, Pennsylvania, but the identity of the piece's maker remains a mystery.
