Cherry Wash Stand, American Federal Period, Ca. 1825

America Ca. 1825

A very nice country example with an unusual canted front. The primary wood is cherry with bird’s eye maple veneer on the drawer front. I bought this with a 1/4″ glass top if the buyer wishes to have it and not find the bowl and cups it was designed to hold. Possibly made in Northern New England or New York State.

Price

$520

Condition

Very good + antique condition, a few minor dings, etc. The top has the usual age shrinkage crack that has been reinforced. The veneer at the bottom of the facade has an unobtrusive crack which can be seen in the close up of the drawer area. The brass pull is not the original.

Measurements

39.5" H X 25" W X 16.5" D the corner wall dimension are 17"

These stately examples look just like late 18th century originals that were made for the wealthiest American families. This particular form is associated with Philadelphia makers.
