This highboy is characteristic of the best in country high-style cabinetry.
The perfectly molded bonnet and the delicately-carved pinwheels and fans indicate a high level of cabinet-making skill. The overall design of the skirt and the tall, delicate legs indicate that the original was from the Wethersfield, Connecticut, area.
The bonnet top is formed by bending a thin piece of pine over the top frame and securing it with rosehead nails.
There are two “secret” drawers in the opening inside the bonnet.
