HEPPLEWHITE MAHOGANY CARD TABLE WITH SPECTACULAR FIGURED MAPLE VENEER PANELS MADE IN BOSTON AREA CIRCA 1790'S



The form of this Hepplewhite card table with serpentine sides and rosewood crossbanded panels is indicative of manufacture on the North Shore of Massachusetts from Boston to Portsmouth,NH. However what sets this example apart from others is the magnificent panels of highly figured maple veneer across the apron and down the legs. Notice also that the two front legs have panels on all three sides while the back legs on two sides. This card table really makes a strong visual statement and lights up a room. It is in excellent original structural condition.

A virtually identical card table, obviously by the same maker, is in the Garvan collection at Yale and is illustrated and described on page 137 of "The Work of Many Hands: Card Tables in Federal America 1790-1820".
