The Chippendale Period takes its name from the English cabinetmaker and designer Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779) and was popular in America from approximately 1765 to 1785. Chippendale published his “Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director” in 1754 and its influence soon found its way across the Atlantic. Chippendale’s designs were influenced by both the Rococo style and Chinese design. The designs included pierced and carved back splats, ball and claw carved feet, shell carved crests, as well as serpentine front chests, scrolled top clocks, bonnet top high chests and shaped top dressing tables.
