Its bold design was inspired by classical architecture and required the use of large blocks of swirl-grained mahogany. Carved in alternating convex and concave blocks, the wood-rich front resembled piers, each topped with a handsome shell-carved cap. The chest is a reproduction of a cherished antique that resides in the masterworks gallery of Colonial Williamsburg's DeWitt Wallace Museum. The antique is attributed to the cabinetmaking shop of John Townsend of Newport, RI, whose craftsmanship epitomized the block-front form among New England furniture-making shops.
