A Walnut Chippendale Server with Carved Shells, Philadelphia, c. This is a magnificent large walnut base to a highboy that has had a walnut top fitted that has aged beauiftully with the rest of the piece, and functions as an elegant server. This base is completely original and retains its deep mellow color.
As it is very wide, it converts to a useful server or small sideboard without alterations to the piece, with the exception of a top board addition. The shell is large and beautifully carved. The base is nicely scalloped and the nicely sprung cabriole legs have finely carved knee shells, which are also carved on the rear legs.
All are supported with strongly carved claw and ball feet. This server makes a strong Chippendale statement and is a wonderful reuse of the lower section of what was once a monumental highboy.All offerings are in fine condition with no major repairs or replacements unless otherwise indicated in description.
