Sack catalogue description: Queen Anne maple highboy with fan-carved center drawer, graceful cabriole legs, original brasses. Made by Jeremiah Day, a cabinetmaker from Ipswich, Massachusetts; accompanying the highboy are a remarkable group of affidavits, old letters referring to this highboy's Day family background, and a complete line of descent. Illustrated is an envelope written in 1911 relating to its maker; it remained in the family until its purchase by us from Elaine (Elsie) Day Hansen, born October 3, 1874. A family label reads, "Original handmade nails old highboy / Built by / Jeremiah Day / Born Oct 31, 1712 / Died 1788." ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols.
