A wonderful Empire period tall chest was hand carved of mahogany about 1840 with classical lion paw feet and acanthus columns. Drawers have bold flame grain fronts. Drawers have hand cut dovetail joints and chamfered bottoms. Rear brass wheels appear original.
The restored finish is in excellent condition on this American made antique furniture. There are shrinkage separations from age, especially on the wide plank sides, see photos.
On the back is a card from around 1880, inscribed "Restored by Ernest F. Hagen, Dealer in Antique Furniture, 213 E. 26th St, New York." Lavish cast brass hardware probably dates from that restoration.
Size is 36" wide, 24" deep and 51" tall.
