A Hepplewhite Card Table, Mahogany, Providence, Rhode Island, c. 1810, attributed to the workshop of Joseph and Samuel Rawson
A shaped top with edge
inlay with a conforming apron is embellished with
soft maple veneers all of which are supported by four
tapered legs which are similarly embellished with
line inlay and panels. Below the inlay panels are
husk inlays typical of Rhode Island work. This example
is closely related to the labeled Rawson table in
the Mabel Brady Garvan collection and differs only
in the use of additional panel inlays and is illustrated
Tables and Looking Glasses
by David L. Barquist on Exhibit 106, pages 206-208.
This table has an old, overlaid surface, and the condition is exemplary. Two dealers tried to buy it from us (at our home). It was never offered. It is better than the one in the Mabel Brady Garvan collection with the additional boxed inlays and husks at the top of the leg. The Garvan example has the label and ours is obviously from the same shop.
Height: 28 3/4 in. Width: 34 in.
