Mason County, Kentucky, "Tuttle" Group Chest of Drawers
4/12/2014 - Americana: Live Salesroom Auction
American (Kentucky), ca 1800-1810. A case on frame chest of drawers in cherry with poplar and pine, having a molded top edge over four graduated drawers with cockbeaded surrounds on the case, all over a cyma-curved skirt and distinctive cabriole legs; ht. 45.75, wd. 43.25, dp. 19.25 in. 
Note: This chest belongs to a group of case furniture believed to have originated in Upper Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. Initially believed that all pieces with case-on-frame-construction and bandy legs were made by the same hand, that of Peter Tuttle, the group was much more of a regional style than a single hand. Pieces with distinctive cabriole legs such as these, but with small stylistic differences, were believed to have originated in three Kentucky counties, (Mason, Lewis and Fleming) and in parts of Southern Ohio.
This particular piece is one of fine cabinetmaking skills with subtle
styling, simple apron, and rarely seen, cockbeading on the face of the case, rather than on the drawers' edges.


Condition:  
Refinished. Top molding separating on right side. Top a possible replacement.
