North Carolina Chest on Frame
American, probably Rowan County (Piedmont), North Carolina. Circa 1810. Constructed of cherry with a yellow pine secondary. Measures 39 W x 19 3/4 D x 57 T.
An excellent example of a rare North Carolina chest on frame. Two small drawers over three larger drawers. Mahogany veneered drawers. Has survived in very good condition with only two small strips to the back replaced, otherwise all original. An inscription under the middle drawer reads “Dear Jaunita, Will answer your letter to day. Sure was good to hear from you. So By By, Willma Brown, N Wilkesboro, NC”.
