Catalogue Note

Very few early eighteenth century Baroque New York candlestands survive. This example with its ornately turned shaft and scrolled flat sawn legs is the most successful of the group.  Its inverted cup turning is very similar to the leg turning on the Samuel Clement dressing table in the collection at Winterthur Museum (acc. no. 57.511).
