Connolly Highboy

This Curly Cherry Highboy is a companion piece to the Connolly Lowboy. It has two carved fans on the center drawers of the lower and upper cases.

I met the Connollys at Mt. Vernon Market Fair and they commissioned this pair of lowboy and highboy. They asked for highly figured Cherry. I kept an eye on Irion Lumber's website, waiting for a special set of Curly Cherry and found a magnificent one with figure that looks like flame Birch! This highboy is in the style of Eliphalet Chapin from the Connecticut River Valley in around 1780.
