Chest on Chest, Thomas Affleck, Circa 1770, Philadelphia. Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This same gothic blind fret seen on the legs of the tea table is also seen here on the frieze of this chest on chest. It has been suggested that the use of blind fret was introduced to Philadelphia furniture by Thomas Affleck.
