19TH CENTURY EMPIRE WORK TABLE
MADE IN NEW ENGLAND
Lovely turned legs in a spooled style
A fantastic example of country American Empire. It’s all original, with some of the green paint still visible, especially around the drawer. The entire piece has received a coat of wax to bring out the depth of the original finish. The base and legs appear to have once been painted in a period green, which must have been semi-removed long ago. It was an estate find from a farmhouse, with many items having been untouched for a very longtime. The wear and patina are so attractive and give testament to the age of this piece.
In very solid condition, with nicely working hinges and smooth gliding runners. The table is mainly made of mahogany, with drawer bottom, back and sides of pine. All dovetails are strong, within the drawer.
Local pickup would be desired. Delivery can be arranged throughout New England, Boston and New York City.
