Federal Period Mahogany Candle Stand Ca. 1825
America Ca. 1825
A bold design constructed of dense heavy mahogany. This is the third example I have found with similar
details such as the raised reeded molding on the tops of the legs which stop a couple of inches above the
spade feet, vigorously arched “spider” legs and heavy but well formed posts. One example had a triple elliptic
shaped top and the other one was like this with double elliptic or “clover leaf” shaped top. I suspect this group may have been made in the Albany, New York region.
Excellent polished antique condition. Normal repairs and signs of age and use.
28 1/2" high, 20 3/4" long, 17 1/4" wide
