Late 17th Century William & Mary Highboy

This late 17th Century William & Mary highboy is beautifully crafted from mahogany. It is comprised of two detachable parts, the lower chest which has three drawers, and the flattop chest, which has five drawers. The wood has a reddish, warm tone and its subtle, marble-like grain is used decoratively here with the drawer facades trimmed in a parquetry design. Each drawer has brass drop pulls. The three longer drawers are decorated with a keyhole escutcheon. The highboy stands on six trumpet-turned legs and ball feet. The legs are further supported by a base stretcher.
