SOLD - Early American period tall chest on chest 18th century walnut

Antique 18th c American chest on chest Antique 18th c American chest on chest


A beautiful 18th century chest on chest.  The overall measurements are approximately 74-3/4" tall, 45" wide, and 21-5/8" deep.  We believe it is walnut, American (possibly Pennsylvania), and dates to the later half of the 18th century.  While it is a great looking piece, this item is 200+ years old, so please understand that it DOES show wear and tear commensurate with age and use, and there ARE repairs and other issues visible upon close inspection.  Several boards on the back have been replaced.  There are modern screws to be found on the back, feet, and side (there is some damage to one side particularly - please see photos).  The brasses look to be old replacements.  There is some damage to the TOP of the piece where it looks like it took on water at some point (see photo).  The surface looks like an old refinish.
