1670-1700 American (Massachusetts) Joined chest at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston - From the curators' comments: "Many woodworking shops were active in seventeenth-century New England, and ordinarily the sources of their furniture design can be traced back to specific areas of England....The shallow relief carving covering almost every square inch of its facade is evocative of the Devon style, as is its original painted decoration, much of which has survived though muted by time."
