Rare monumental and sculptural walnut and walnut veneer gentleman's chest by an unknown American designer. This piece offers sculptural walnut doors on top, sculptural pulls in the bottom and sits on a solid walnut base. The piece offers hanging storage for a suit, 8 large cubbies and 2 drawers. Restored throughout. The ID of this piece has kept us stumped for a while. It is attributed to Albert Parvin & Co, an American design firm but at this time we can find no further documentation to prove or tie this to the design firm. The design is commonly misattributed to American of Martinsville furniture lines but we see no evidence that the tie exists other than a few references to lower quality mass produced designs by American of Martinsville. This is either a custom piece or a low production design by a design firm. Please see all photos to ensure you know what you are buying. We include FREE SHIPPING in the listing price. Some exceptions apply, so please read the full shipping details below.
