    Incorporate classic colonial style into your décor with the Raleigh Chippendale six-drawer chest. Named for Sir Walter Raleigh, this stately piece adds ample storage and timeless elegance to the master bedroom. With subtly graduated drawers, bracket feet, handsome solid brasses and inset keyholes, the Raleigh chest exemplifies the "plain but neat" rococo furniture preferred by 18th-century Virginians.

    The fine attention to detail and superior craftsmanship of a 6th-generation furniture maker have resulted in an heirloom-quality chest that will last for generations to come. The top lifts to reveal a hidden compartment for jewelry or other valuables. Drawers are dovetailed front and back with a hand-beaded edge. Center drawer runners provide additional strength, and chest divides are also dovetailed. The chest's side panels run to the floor, and the bracket feet are then attached around them. This method equally distributes the weight on the side panels and helps minimize cracks over time. Williamsburg collection by Owen Suter.  -MSRP $9,720

    The original Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg was established about 1717 and named for Sir Walter Raleigh, who had attempted the first colonization of Virginia in 1585. His lead bust stood above the door and, during Publick Times in April and October, planters and merchants from all over the colony passed beneath it on the way to the court. Some adjourned to play dice in the gaming room or to feast in the dining room.
