Object Description

The cross-grain moulded and feather banded book-matched top sits above two short and three long feather-banded drawers, each book-matched, lined in oak and framed to the carcass with a double-D cross-grain moulding, raised on what is known as the ball and bracket foot.

The chest comes from a small group of pieces to bear the ball and bracket foot and perhaps most famously, by Coxed and Woster, st. Pauls Churchyard, London and Peter Miller ‘in the Savoy’, St Mary-Le-Savoy, London.

The ball and bracket foot was only in production from circa 1720-1735, a transition from the bun foot to the bracket foot. It is most desirable and sought after by collectors.
