Unusual Post-Modern Chest of Drawers by Stephen Whittlesey

$6,500

About

An unusual, Post-Modern chest of drawers by New England artisan Stephen Whittlesey. Wonderfully graphic scale and form, playfully executed with a multi-colored pastel paint finish. Whimsical yet utilitarian with its many drawers housed within an exaggerated totemic design. Artist's "SW" initials etched low on one side. Fantasy furniture at its finest and most fun.
