Lightfoot Chippendale Bedside Chest (CW)

Item Number: C13-28

Decorate in classic colonial style with this heirloom-quality bedside chest. With subtly graduated drawers, bracket feet and handsome solid brass bail pulls, the Lightfoot Chippendale chest exemplifies the “plain but neat” rococo furniture preferred by 18th-century Virginians. As beautiful as it is practical, the bedside chest is named for Colonel Philip Lightfoot, a wealthy Yorktown merchant and planter who owned extensive properties in 18th-century Williamsburg.

Drawers are dovetailed front and back with a beaded edge hand-applied by a skilled craftsman. The drawer sides are made from solid maple wood. The chest’s side panels run to the floor, and the feet are then attached around them.
