Half Scale Bombé Chest


The kettle-shaped bombé form (the term is derived from the French word for bulge) is characterized by the swelling of the lower half of the carcase ends and front, with the swell returning to a normalvsize base. This shape is, I think, directly related to English pieces such as the Apthorp chest-on-chest, which was imported to Boston before 1758 and is now at that city’s Museum of Fine Arts. Bombé was popular in England for only 10 to 12 years, but remained the vogue in Boston for nearly 60 years. In America, the carcase ends were always shaped from thick, solid planks of mahogany. In Europe, the ballooning case ends were most often coopered—3-in. to 4-in. pieces of wood were sawn to shape, glued up, contoured and then veneered. Instead of veneering, the Americans worked with solid wood. I think the magnificent grain patterns of this shaped mahogany are a major attribute of Boston furniture. Hand carved to half the scale. The original is on display in the Boston Arts Museum.
