An exceptionally fine William & Mary period Chest-on-Stand decorated on each show-surface with variously shaped panels of intricately detailed arabesque seaweed marquetry, within leaf-trail and spear-head borders, all on a ground of geometrically arranged princes wood oyster-pieces. The two short and three long drawers have fine wainscot oak linings, original engraved brass escutcheons and replaced drop-handles. The stand has five turned baluster legs united by shaped stretchers which are also decorated with marquetry panels. The bun feet have been replaced.
In excellent condition
From a private collection.

The combination of woods, the intensity of the design in the marquetry panels and the quality of the manufacture bears a close resemblance to the work found in a pair of stands at Levens Hall which are believed to be the work of Thomas Pistor. The chest also bears a close resemblance to the Fairfax House cabinet all suggestive of the common source of Pistor.

Thomas Pistor (1694 – 1711) of The Cabinet, Ludgate Hill, London and Member of the Joiners’ Company (see Dictionary of English Furniture Makers, page 100).
