FINE AND RARE NEW MARKET, SHENANDOAH CO., SHENANDOAH

Lot 0428 Details

Description
FINE AND RARE NEW MARKET, SHENANDOAH CO., SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA FEDERAL HARD POPLAR CHILD’S CHEST OF DRAWERS, a rare and desirable form, the rectangular top with applied beaded-edge molding over a dovetailed case featuring four graduated and scratch-beaded drawers fitted with original turned wooden knobs, raised on a fully-framed base highlighted by a cut-out skirt and modified bandy-like feet in the French style. Yellow pine secondary wood, horizontal two-board back attached with outstanding rose-head nails. Early, possibly original, varnished surface. Reserve. Circa 1795-1805. 27" H, 10 3/4" x 25 1/4" top.

Provenance: The estate of Hazel Olene Kibler, Woodstock, VA.

Catalogue Note: This outstanding child’s chest of drawers descended in the Kibler family of Shenandoah Co., VA. It was likely made for Philip Kibler, Sr. (1779-1871), passed to his son, Philip Kibler, Jr. (1817-1896) and then to his son, Alfred Kibler (1852-1914), then to his son, Obed Kibler (1882-1981), and finally to his daughter, Hazel Kibler (1913-2013).
Note: The distinctive base seen on this desk, consisting of modified French feet built on a full frame, has been seen on numerous other early 19th century case pieces from the New Market area, but until recently has not been attributable to a specific cabinetshop. With the discovery by JSE & Associates in 2009 of the signed James McCann desk, currently in the collection of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, the group can now be firmly attributed to the Jeremiah Evans cabinetshop in New Market, Virginia. Evans likely established his New Market operation in the late 18th century and had progressed enough in the enterprise by 1802 to take on James McCann as an apprentice. McCann and Evans collaborated in the cabinetmaking business for the next 15 years, and the younger McCann most likely continued to operate the shop after Evans' death in 1816. Research on this cabinetshop is ongoing.
Condition
Good as-found condition, top with loss to end moldings, loss of strip moldings on stiles, small loss to bottom drawer facing, loss of beaded base molding on one end, minor expected wear to feet. Wear and minor staining to top.
