Chest with drawers with a single board, lift lid attached to the case with two snipe hinges. The chest was part of the furnishing of Susan B. Hawks (1883-1946) in the Sheldon House, which can be seen in an old photograph by Griffiths of Hollywood, Calif. Ms. Hawks was a Sheldon descendent who last owned the Sheldon House before it was bought by Henry N. Flynt (1893-1970) in 1946. She had an antiques business in the house where she sold many locally-obtained pieces, so the chest could have been a family piece or one purchased from a local family. The National Heritage Museum (formerly Museum of Our National Heritage) has a similar chest thought to be from the Deerfield or Hatfield area, which was stored in a barn in western Massachusetts for many years and had its turned feet replaced by Wallace Nutting's shop around 1932. This case has a single arch molding around the top; over two false drawers and two real drawers (number inscribed on the top pull-out drawer), all four with the original brass handles and esctucheons; plain sides; and a molded base and four long, turned legs. The real drawers have side groove runners; the stiles are visible, but nearly hidden by moldings and paint. The chest has been refinished; traces of old red paint can be found (these chests were all painted and/or decorated). See also 0383.
