Classical Work Table

Boston, Massachusetts
Circa 1830

This excellent work table features beautifully matched crotch mahogany veneers, delicate line and proportion, and original marbled paper lining on the inside of the sewing box. While the distinctive foliate-carved feet are associated with the finest Boston cabinetmakers, this piece is related to an example which bears the stenciled label of William Fisk. For a similar example, see Archive Item C384.
