Kentucky Chest-on-Frame
Kentucky Chest-on-Frame
I have for a long time been captivated by the early work of Kentucky cabinetmakers, particularly the chest-on-frame furniture from Maysville and what was Mason County, KY. The short cabriole leg with no "foot" and graceful, skirted frame, supporting a chest of drawers, sugar chest or desk seems to have been unique to this area. Typically done in cherry or walnut, such furniture was often gracefully embellished with string inlay (of Maple or Holly) as well as vine-and-leaf inlay, as on the chamfered corners of this piece. I am grateful to The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts for allowing me to study their Mason CO., KY chest. For further information, see The Tuttle Muddle:An Investigation of a Kentucky Chest-on-Frame Group.
