Queen Anne Style Highboy Chest on Chest, top and bottom are separate pieces. 9 drawers. The four largest drawers have locks, key is missing. Drawers are dovetailed joinery, the drawer pulls appear to be original to the piece, and have the number 2377 stamped on the back of the pulls. The wood inside the drawers appears to be the same as the exterior wood and stained to match. There is no label or identifying mark on the wood, and I am not knowledgeable enough to determine if this is a handmade piece or factory made. It appears to be old, but again I do not have the knowledge to determine it’s age and the history is unknown except that it was my grandparents before I inherited it.
Wood, possibly pine?
Size and dimensions of this item
53 inches high x 34 inches wide x 18 inches deep
This belonged to my grandparents and was given to me by my parents when they moved. Other than that my grandparents owned it I have no idea of where they obtained it from or how old it is, etc. I have looked at every inch and cannot find a maker’s mark or label. I am not knowledgeable enough about furniture to make a guess as to age or what the wood is but it is very well made and appears to be quite old. I know there are very good reproductions and that this style had a resurgence at one point. My grandparents were both from New England and my Grandfathers family was from New York State originally.
