With its original operations in Nashua New Hampshire and in Medford, MA, Isaac Kaplan, Boston's furniture maestro of the 1930s, acquired Old Colony Furniture Co. and merged it with his own creating the famous Beacon Hill Collection. These serpentine chests boast fine craftsmanship and have the original Old Colony name plates. Though these are not antiques they are to be appreciated and admired for their originality, detail and fine craftsmanship. So detailed are these chests, that one of them has a pop-up mirror in the second drawer.
The stunning veneered mahogany wood outlined by the satin and ebony inlay that runs around the entire top edge of the chest is just perfect.
These beautiful chests were being offered for $1,199 and $1,299 for the chest with the embedded mirror. The chests sold on the day of our video production, but they were so spectacular that we felt it was worth featuring them anyway.
We have one remaining piece manufactured by Old Colony Furniture Co. and it is a beautiful hutch for $1,999.
You can find beautiful mahogany furniture by some of America's classic manufacturers in our Hanover, MA Furniture Consignment Gallery and in our newest Furniture Consignment Gallery in Chestnut Hill.
