I am finally getting around to an update. It's been some time since the last as we both have been dealing with many other activities and life changes. I have more to go but it may take a little more time.
Maple chest on chest with pine secondary. Dovetailed throughout. Top retains original brasses; appropriate brasses on the base. The proportions are excellent. When I purchased it, there was no finish, thus the present shellac finish. This chest probably originated in Massachusetts or New Hampshire. Circa 1780-1800. 42" wide X 20" deep X 72" high.
