East Tennessee Federal inlaid chest of drawers, cherry primary and poplar secondary. Consisting of a slightly overhanging plain top with line inlaid sides, above four reverse graduated dovetailed and cockbeaded drawers with barber pole inlay borders to each drawer. Each drawer with case line inlaid surrounds, early eagle-stamped oval brasses and applied brass escutcheons, all above a shaped skirt with line inlay and tall shaped bracket feet. 44 3/4" H x 42" W x 18 1/4" D. Circa 1830.


Older refinish; overall very good condition. Oval eagle brasses appear to be original to the chest. Chest appears to retain original blocking. The back left rear facing has been abraided to one edge and re-attached. One backboard slightly loose, a couple of drawers with wear to the lower drawer sides, the second drawer interior with felt and moldings added to possibly house silver flatware.
