A rare and exceptional early American Hepplewhite style chest of drawers attributed to Asahel Jones (1766-1822) of Castleton, Vermont, circa 1810. The chest features a beautiful cherry wood case with stunning flame birch drawer fronts and inlaid mahogany trim. It has a fashionable form featuring a shaped skirt and flared “French” feet. Interior wood is pine. The chest offers good storage, with four deep dovetailed drawers. It is sturdy and in good original antique condition, with normal wear as expected from age and use. A truly outstanding statement piece.
