New York Sideboard

A beautiful, Hepplewhite sideboard. This impressive piece has extensive inlay with an overall lighter mahogany color. Made at the end of the 18th century, it features lots of drawers and storage.Look closely at the dark and light inlay around the outside edge of the doors makes each drawer and door. This causes these pieces to really “pops” off the case. The figured mahogany panels are beautiful too. However, what really stands out are the inlaid triangles, or “icicles”. The darker portion of the icicles was burned too great the dark shading. This work is one of the indicators that it comes from New York. Look closely at the center front legs. Not only are they tapered, but they shaped like to the contour of the case which makes them tapered parallelograms. WOW! Overall, it has been restored at some point, probably in the mid-20th century, and has a nice rich luster to the finish. If one looks closely, one can see where knobs were mounted in the center of the doors and repaired. This repair is superb and not noticed until pointed out. It stands 39” tall, 72 3/8” long, and 26 ¼” deep. If one is looking for an impressive piece, this will certainly demand attention. American, most likely New York. Circa 1800.

Price: $9950
