A Carved Mahogany Worktable, Salem, McIntire School, c.1810-1820

This fine, fully developed worktable is composed of highly figured mahogany and presents a commanding presence with four sumptuously carved legs.   The carved colonettes of leafage and punchwork above tapered reeded legs are classic Salem, and strongly associated with the work of Samuel McIntire and Samuel Field McIntire.  The lower drawer is fitted for a hanging sewing bag. 

This is the finest example of Salem work we’ve handled.

Height: 29 1/2 in.   Width: 21 in.  Depth: 17 1/2 in.
