Early American Furnishings

Baltimore Late Federal Mahogany Side Table, c.1820


a rare local form consisting of highly figured book-matched veneers and a solid crotch mahogany top with moulded edge; a crisp, classic example of a Baltimore maker’s interpretation of the English Regency style, embodied by the pointed “fasces lictoriae” reeding of the legs, the multiple ring turnings below the stiles, and the turned trumpet feet; the drawer secondary wood is tulip poplar; in excellent condition with some minor veneer chip repair; the brass pulls are replacements; dimensions: 30″ tall x 36″ wide x 22″ deep; provenance: probably from the Col. Oswald Tilghman Family of Talbot County, Maryland via the estate of John Frazer, Jr. of Annapolis
