Dietrich American Foundation: A John Brocas High Chest

Over the next year, the Dietrich American Foundation will present a series of articles in these pages, each featuring an object from the collection. The findings come from an extensive furniture survey conducted during the last several years by conservator Christopher Storb, who, along with the curator of the Foundation, Deborah Rebuck, examined 144 pieces in the collection as part of the project. This was a meticulous project, and from it, great stories have been revealed.
