Hand Crafted Reproduction of a c. 1720 William and Mary Spice Chest
Modeled after a 1720 Philadelphia piece that recently sold at auction for $112,000, this museum-quality walnut spice chest will be available for delivery after the New England Home Show in February and the period furniture exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Art in March 2013.
This piece will also be featured in Popular Woodworking Magazine later this year.
Entirely hand-crafted, no powered machinery of any kind used, in authentic 18th century Philadelphia style and construction. Burled walnut drawer fronts, walnut case, base and legs with white oak, poplar and white pine secondary woods. Londonderry and Horton brasses were used, which are cast from 18th century originals, and are the finest hardware available.
No expense or effort spared to produce one of the most authentic reproduction pieces available on the market.
Ten hand-dovetailed drawers, with five secret compartments to protect your valuables, or to just have a bit of fun.
Legs turned on an authentic spring pole lathe, similar to what would have been used in 1720.
Hand polished shellac and oil finish. No effort spared.
A truly exclusive one-of-a-kind masterpiece of cabinetmaking. The closest thing you can buy today to a c.1720 original from one of the only craftsman working today in the true 18th century method with truly 18th century tools and skill.
18" wide by 26" high.
Deposits will be taken at any time, with delivery occurring after the DIA exhibition in late March.
