This watch hutch is a Pennsylvania-German interpretation of the Chippendale style, of a rare large scale and fine carved ornamentation. It is distinguished by a molded broken arch pediment ending in turned colonettes, centering an urn and spire finial above a split-baluster applied plinth, the front panel with small circular aperture with molded edge, the corners with fan-carved quadrants, flanked by block-and- turned columns with carved twisted fluting, with base molding below.
