A Fine and Rare Mahogany Neoclassical Sewing Stand with Wooden Tassels, probably Boston, c.1830

The basic tapered chest is composed of matched crotch grain mahogany, which has turned a mellow color with beautiful overtones. The interior is composed of a lift-out needle-button compartment and its original mirror under the top lid. The wooden tassels are quite exceptional. The central column has an urn form all supported on a plinth with hairy paw feet below scrolled embellishment. While this is a very small piece, the degree of complexity throughout is extraordinary and is in museum condition.

Height: 31 1/4 in. Width: 16 1/2 in. Depth: 13 1/2 in.
