We are pleased to be offering today this gorgeous ball and claw Chippendale carved front Philadelphia style low boy cedar chest that was made back in the 1940s to 1950s. I don't see a tag of who made this particular blanket chest, but they were a classy act. This one is gorgeous with a clam shell carving on the raised center, applied carvings in the middle, carved columns down the corners and ends in ball and claw cabriole style feet. It retains the original Chippendale style brass hardware. The top has a multi-molded ogee bevel edge. The top opens very easily, as the lock has been disabled, and exposes a very deep cedar lined interior that is 38 inches wide, 17 inches deep and 14 inches high. Someone has taken all the paperwork off the inside of the top as you can see that the original staples are all intact. I believe that this is probably by Cavalier, by the style of hardware. The lock has been disabled, provides tons of storage and has the wonderful cedar smell. The overall size is 42 inches wide, 20.5 inches deep and 31 inches high. It is beautiful overall with minor surface scratches on the face. We have refinished the top to remove the nicks and dings.
