Six-legged Federal Period Sideboard


Mahogany, mahogany veneer, inlays; tulip poplar, white pine

Condition Notes

The present brasses are at least the third set; the oval backplates are slightly smaller than an earlier imprint. Evidence suggests the original brasses had a single post with a round backplate. Centered pulls once on the cupboard doors were probably not original. The top has split along the grain with securing pins. Four holes for screws to resecure the top in each end are poorly filled.
