Maple and Pine Chest over Three Drawers, possibly Harvard, Massachusetts, early 19th century, the third under-hung drawer is surely a Shaker addition, old surface, old replaced wooden pulls, (imperfections), ht. 40 1/4, wd. 37, dp. 18 in.
Literature: The Complete Book of Shaker Furniture, Timothy D. Rieman and Jean M. Burks, Abrams, New York, 1993, p. 212, entry number 156, discusses this chest specifically.
drawer runners need fixing; old holes where original brasses once were; varnish inconsistencies.
