Southern Hepplewhite Sideboard
This nice, mahogany sideboard has a lot going for it. First, the shape is very pleasing. The recessed center gives it some character and is an element one doesn’t see in the South very often. Second, it is Southern. The secondary wood is Yellow Pine. Third, it is petite at 61 1/2″ in length, 19″ deep, and 36 1/8″ tall. It would look great in a smaller dining room, in a hall, or in a living room as a larger server. This piece was probably reduced in depth around 100 years ago. However, one really has to get into the piece to figure that out. Lastly, the inlay is nice and understated. Believe it or not, but there are belle flowers on the legs but they appear to be inlayed out of the same mahogany the piece is made out of. As a result, it is hard to see unless one is right up on it. Probably Virginia or Maryland. Circa 1785.
