A fine and important antique Chippendale chest of drawers, attributed to John Townsend, Newport, Rhode Island, Circa 1790.

A fine and important antique Chippendale mahogany chest of drawers, attributed to John Townsend, Newport, Rhode Island, circa 1790. This finely proportioned antique chest of drawers is constructed of high quality mahogany that retains a rich color. Along with choice materials the chest possesses bold stop fluted columns and distinctive bracket feet that are identified with the renown Goddard and Townsend cabinet shops of 18th Century Newport, Rhode Island. Specific construction techniques used in the rear feet are associated with the work of John Townsend. It is likely this piece was made in his cabinet shop. A labeled John Townsend four drawer chest in the Dr. and Mrs. William Serri collection exhibits a rear foot with identical construction. Please see, “Master Craftsmen of Newport”, Michael Moses, pages 76 & 101, attached here. These characteristics include rear corner braces with ogee shaped profiles and rear feet with ogee shaped back surfaces.
