This chest shows clearly the evolution of a furniture style. Unlike earlier chests that had drawers only in the bottom and were constructed of panels set in a joined framed, this chest is made of solid wood and the drawers occupy the entire case. Also unlike earlier chests with painted decorations, the maple grain is highlighted to serve as the chest’s adornment.
