Howard Sideboard
mahogany, mahogany crotch, holly inlay, 46"w, 41"h, 22"d  available

A simple and elegant Providence Hepplewhite sideboard design after an original by Thomas Howard (1774-1833). The design employs four drawers and two center doors with cockbeaded edges. The facade features bookmatched mahogany crotch veneer with holly string inlay on the drawer and door fronts and legs. The oval Hepplewhite pulls offer a pleasant contrast with the rectilinear lines.

John Townsend Marble-Top Side Table
mahogany, 28"h, 46½"w, 23"d

A marble-top side table in the manner of John Townsend. The front and side aprons are blocked and serpentine. The front legs have knees carved in the Townsend manner and open-talon ball and claw feet. The back legs are cabriole ending in pad feet. The marble top is shaped to follow the frame profile.

John Townsend Marble-Top Center Table
mahogany, 30"h, 46"w, 24"d

All four legs have knees carved in the Townsend pattern, and the ball and claw feet are cut over the ball and have open talons. The marble top is functional and practical, and the material is attractive in contrast with the mahogany.

A delicately proportioned Federal design sideboard of diminutive size. The front of the piece, including the top, doors and drawer are  bowed. The facade features bookmatched mahogany crotch veneers  with holly string and shaded floral inlay.
