New England, likely Massachusetts, ca. 1820. Original paint on what appears to be maple, pine, and poplar. Paint decoration that is typically seen just on boxes,rare on a stand. Elegant successful proportions, with long, delicate, slender legs ending in tiny button feet. Well cared for in a very high state of originality. Brass pull is not the first yet is period and appropriate. About 30 1/2 inches tall. Top is about 22 x 19 inches. As described in Fales AMERICAN PAINTED FURNITURE, vinegar painting was accomplished by "walking" the second coat of paint over the ground color with a soft material like leather or sponge. Vinegar was used in the overcoat, as it dried the linseed oil in the putty caused a separation in the darker glaze producing unusual patterns. A very sweet and appealing folk art rarity.
