The design for the handle appears in an 18th Century pattern book, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (T. Crom (ed.), An Eighteenth Century English Brass Hardware Catalogue, p. 56, no. 381). A related double chest-of-drawers, with fluted pilaster angles and 'picturesque' mounts, is illustrated in H. Cescinsky, English Furniture from Gothic to Sheraton, New York, 1937, p. 270.
A closely related tallboy with this same handle was sold by Michael Lipitch, at Christie's King Street, 4 October 2001, lot 90 (£14,000 plus premium).
