Early American Primitive Chest of Drawers
This wonderful piece of early American primitive furniture is massive, measuring 61 inches wide by 31 ¼ inches deep by 44 inches tall.
The worn green paint and sheet copper mends on the drawer faces and on top give this piece so much character.
It looks to have originally been a typical chest of drawers, but was modified to house the tapered open-top drawers at some point in it's history.
In this configuration it could have served many uses from a linen press, to a tool cabinet, to a drying cabinet. I could see this piece in a retail space with drawers extended and dry goods on display.
The drawers are in good working order.
