The base cabinet has a. Rare 3 over 3 layout with select cuts of Cherry used for the faces. The feet were superbly executed with a nice scrolling pattern and dramatic carved spurs. We're extremely ardent about Connecticut furniture and truly feel it's one of the most underrepresented schools of early American cabinetry.
Yale, Historic Deerfield, and the Five Colleges probably hold the best Connecticut furniture collections but outside of New England you'll rarely see Connecticut furniture on display. The work surface has a set of hand cut dovetails on display and the doors are peg joined.
The cabinet has pine secondaries and is in wonderful condition with our only notes being minor surface wear, a small piece of wood missing on the left side right below the mid molding, & the brasses were replaced with period accurate pulls.
