Walnut with pine secondary bonnet-top high chest probably made in York, circa 1770, belonged to early York physician Dr. Job Lyman, whose house still stands at the corner of Organug Road and Indian Trail in York village.Show Details
The chest follows Boston area furniture design but is more massively constructed than Boston examples. Two almost identical high chests (one in walnut, the other in maple) made by the same craftsman using the same tools and templates survive in York collections and carry histories back to 18th century York.
The craftsmen is unidentified.
