Mahogany with mahogany and birch veneers, and northeastern white pine secondary.

In a remarkable state of original preservation, the chest retains a deep chocolate brown color and dry original finish, the pilasters retain original black-painted surface in imitation of ebony; all of the brass knobs and escutcheons are original with beautifully aged darkened patina; height 13 5/8 inches, width of case 11 inches, depth of lower case 5 5/8 inches.

This little gem is a perfect miniature of a North Shore Massachusetts or New Hampshire Sheraton bow-front chest of drawers with upper gallery, exquisitely rendered with finely dovetailed drawers with applied contrasting birch cock-beading; the lower case with cookie-corners above ring and twist-tuned pilasters continuing to turned legs.
