After more than 100 years apart, two stellar examples of New England furniture were recently reunited at Historic New England’s Quincy House. In addition to the remarkable early-eighteenth-century high chest, which miraculously survived two fires in 1759 and 1769, a rare mahogany bombé chest is now on display to visitors. One of only forty of its kind known to exist today, the chest is a beautifully crafted example of a form specific to Boston and Salem, Massachusetts.
Quincy House is open for tours on the first Saturday of the month from June to October from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
