Displaying identical skirt and leg shaping, molding profiles and escutcheons, this high chest-of-drawers was almost certainly made in the same shop as an example attributed to Timothy Loomis III (1724-1786) of Windsor, Connecticut. Probably trained by his uncle, Timothy Phelps (1702-1756), in Hartford, Loomis established his business in Windsor and was the town's leading cabinetmaker before the arrival of Eliphalet Chapin in the early 1770s. In 1759, Loomis kept a price list of his production line and updated it the following year. According to his list, the high chest offered here, described as "Cherry case of 9 draws Shel at ye Bottom" cost L3 in 1760 (see Philip Zea, catalogue entry, The Great River: Art & Society of the Connecticut Valley, 1635-1820 (Hartford, CT, 1985), pp. 214-216, cat. 95).
