P4095 for a nearly identical stand, Nancy E. Richards and Nancy Goyne Evans, New England Furniture at Winterthur: Queen Anne and Chippendale Periods, (Winterthur, DE: Winterthur Museum, distributed by University Press of New England, 1997), p. 293, no. 155 for a closely related fire screen, and American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, vol. 7, (Washington, DC: Highland House Publishers Inc., 1983), p. 1722, no.
