Middle Tennessee Sheraton sugar chest of unusual height, cherry primary, poplar secondary. Hinged top with breadboard ends and ogee molding, over a square dovetailed case with interior well divided in three sections. Upper case is secured to the base with pegs and is detachable. Lower case with one dovetailed, scratch-beaded drawer having wooden pulls, over unusually tall Sheraton ring turned and ball feet. Early black paint inscription on back of upper case, "Union City, Tenn. R. A. Adams". Note: Union City is in Obion County, West Tennessee. However, the early form of this sugar chest indicates it was likely made in Middle Tennessee, suggesting Adams may have been a past owner. 41 3/4"H x 26 3/4"W x 18 1/4". Retains the original key.


Older cleaned surface, top 1" of back edge has been replaced on back, older small patch, approximately 1" x 1/2", to back left edge, lower edge of ogee molding with losses to front and back left side. Dovetailed drawer to lower case with bottom drawer side edges built up (less than 1/4").
