William & Mary Oak and Parcel Ebonized Chest

William & Mary Oak and Parcel Ebonized Chest

An attractive example of a late 17th century form. This chest was made in England, but is appropriate for an early Virginia house. Colonial Williamsburg has had a similar chest in its collection since 1936.

The brass drawer pulls are early 19th century replacements.
