Israel Sack, Inc., is pleased to report that this recently secured high chest sold within a week’s time in the high six figures. This sale was made as a part of our new consignment/brokering program.

We consider this piece to be one of the supreme expressions of a Salem Queen Anne highboy. Purchased through a North Shore dealer, we sold the
highboy to collector Bayard Ewing
in 1969. We sold it for his estate through our consignment program for 100 times its cost to Mr. Ewing.
