    An exceptional and unique architectural chest from colonial America.

The central section of the chest features a classical pediment and pilasters surrounding the keyhole escutcheon. The lid with a molded edge opens to reveal a large open area with a till box to the left. The underside of one drawer has been inscribed "E.S. Ammon Oct. 1st 1746." The piece relates to pieces from Frederick, Maryland, and the piece bears certain German construction influences. Likely Shenendoah or Maryland origin.
