Wch-675: North Carolina Chest of Drawers in the Restauration Style:
A bold North Carolina Chest of Drawers in the Restauration Style, c.1835-45. Of solid cherry and walnut with yellow pine secondary, the chest brilliantly juxtaposes a diminutive size with an exaggerated set of contrasts: angles to curves, light to dark, herringbone solid wood effect from drawers to drawer and on each column. Even the gallery repeats the angles that began on the scrolled feet. Replaced pulls and right back splash. Only a gifted craftsman could see such amazing possibilities in a cherry tree! 51"h., 36"w., 22"d. $1,200


Wof-2181z: Southern Yellow Pine Mantle:
A fine c.1840-60 Southern yellow pine mantle - scrolled panel above flattened pilasters. While reminiscent of documented work by Thomas Day - and found regionally - it is impossible to give a solid attribution to any particular cabinet shop. Opening: 37" h., 48" w. Overall: 55" h., 78"w. $1,200
