Classic American antique furniture never goes out of style. The elegant curves and masterful woodworking of a fine piece of furniture in original condition can always attract interest and command high prices at auction.
Just under a decade ago, Skinner made history when we sold an 18th century Chippendale Mahogany Carved Scroll-top Bombe Chest-on-Chest for $1,766,000. This lovely example of the classic American furniture form was made in Boston or the North Shore of Massachusetts, and remained in very fine condition, retaining its old surface and original brasses. Stylistically, the piece most closely resembles one in the collection of Colonial Williamsburg.
