Chippendale Style - c. 1780 - Bookcase - Cherry Image Note: From the Stanley Weiss Collection
Maker Unknown
Catalog ID 1709
Produced c. 1780
Material Cherry
Type Cabinet
Country of Origin United States



Description: Bookcase

Dimensions: 84" High x 43 1/2" Wide x 21" Deep

Notes: This cherry desk/bookcase is in pristine condition with a great construction. The piece is supported by ogee bracket feet, instead of simple flat brackets. Both portions are finished by reeded edge fluting terminating in lamb's tongue carvings. The interior of the desk shows inlay work on the prospect panel and features a secret drawer. The dovetails portray the quality of construction as do the chamfered door panels. A desk/bookcase in this condition is worth $29,000.
