Important Classical Rosewood, Brass Inlaid and Ormolou Mounted Work Table, Boston, Massachusetts, circa 1815

Catalogue Note

With its case veneered with brilliant flitches of rosewood and exuberantly mounted and inlaid with brass, this work table stands at the zenith of Boston Classical furniture design.  Two nearly identical examples survive in the Kaufman and Warner collections (see J. Michael Flanigan, American Furniture from the Kaufman Collection, (Washington, DC: National Gallery of Art, 1986), p. 202, no. 82 and Stuart P. Feld, Boston in the Age of Neo-Classicism: 1820-1840, (New York: Hirschl & Adler Galleries, 1999) p. 27, fig. 11.  Another table, as reported by Flanigan, is in the Grand Rapids Museum.
