A clean and classy credenza inspired by the 18th century designs. This particular shape was used by Chippendale on some of his best pieces. In America, it was also used for chests and desks but only on a limited scale, since the expense of this type of work precluded its greater production. 

The serpentine front has three large drawers in the center and three drawers each on the shaped sides. The drawers conform in swelling and undulating contours to the lines of the framework. Around each drawer, on the frame members, runs a delicate beading. The top is quite sleek and somewhat projecting at the sides and finished at the edges with a cyma moulding. The moulded sides and scalloped bottom apron are adorned with elegant foliate carving. The piece stands upon four squat bandy legs terminating in peg feet. 

Handmade and hand-finished in solid rosewood, the production of this piece is extremely taxing, 425 man hours are credited to the making of this fine piece of art.
