Description:

Inlaid Maple and Tiger Maple Chest of Four Drawers, Southeastern New Hampshire, possibly Hampstead, c. 1817, the top with a checker-banded edge above a crossbanded case of four cockbeaded and similarly crossbanded tiger maple veneer drawers, all on shaped apron joining French feet and centering a tiger maple panel surrounded by checkered banding, refinished, replaced brasses, ht. 38, wd. 38 1/2, dp. 18 in.

Note: The interior of the backboard of the second drawer from the bottom bears a pencil inscription: "Dean Hampstead May 11 1817," which likely refers to an unknown cabinetmaker named Dean in Hampstead, New Hampshire, which is about 20 miles from the coast.
Estimate $3,000-5,000

rear supports likely replaced and (but feet appear fine), veneer patching and minor losses to crossbanding on drawerfronts, top inlaid along front edge only, lock missing in top drawer.
