The Antique Chest on Chest, also known as the Antique Tallboy or more commonly called a Highboy in America was first seen in the early Georgian period in England and was an adaptation from the chest on stand but rather than the chest sitting on a stand, the antique chest on chest would completely utilise the storage by combining two chest of drawers into one. They are mainly built from Mahogany or country Oak and often come with Chippendale features such as Ogee bracket feet or blind fretwork carved, canted corners. The best examples are usually oak lined with brass swan neck handles and the beauty of them is, that they can go into most homes as they split into two sections for removal. Quite often they are very tall, with the two top drawers being too high to use, this is where the step top commode was used, the the Georgian or Victorian Gentleman would use this to stand on to reach.
