Designed by Vincent Chicone
This highboy features mahogany casework set off by figured maple drawer fronts, center finial, and traditional Queen Anne legs. The legs have an over-the-apron style knee block that visually finishes their sweep. I fashioned this chest after a 1748 piece designed by colonial cabinetmaker Christopher Townsend. With a highly shaped skirt and spoon feet, my highboy is an example of a typical Rhode Island flattop. This chest features classic hardware from Horton Brass, in an antique finish. No detail is overlooked with this heirloom piece of furniture, from hand cut dovetailed casework and drawers to hand carved moldings. The warmth of the natural mahogany will add appeal to any room in your home.
Each piece is custom made-to-order—please allow 8-10 weeks. Shipping arranged separately with designer. I offer standard crating and white glove delivery (pricing will vary). For more information, please email below.
Vincent Chicone is a third generation woodworker—he grew up in a cabinetshop, developing his craft under the guidance of his father and grandfather, both finish carpenters. He creates bench-made Windsors in a range of period designs with traditional colonial wood working tools as well as reproduction historic furniture, custom cabinetry, and architectural millwork. His shop, Chicone Cabinetmakers, is nestled in the heart of the Finger Lakes—an area that teems with native hardwoods. Vincent takes advantage of this local resource by producing his chairs and benches out of regionally harvested trees. Vincent is interested in the development of regional furniture forms and the unique style signatures of historic cabinetmakers. He brings his personal interest in historic design, development, and process to all of his projects.
