A highlight from our upcoming late winter auction is this fine Chippendale carved mahogany blockfront chest of drawers descended through the Lombard family of Scituate, MA. Dr. J.P. Lombard purchased this chest from descendants of the Stillings family of Portsmouth, NH in 1901. General Lafayette stayed with the Stillings family when he visited Portsmouth in 1824 or 1825.
Eastern Massachusetts, circa 1760, molded oblong top above a conforming shaped case with four graduated drawers, above a molded skirt with a shaped drop pendant on carved bracket feet, old brasses (appear to be original), 30 1/2″ high, 33 1/2″ wide, 18″ deep.** Consignments of fine art and antiques will be considered for this important auction.
