Sideboard #75
75
Superior Hepplewhite inlaid  mahogany serpentine-front sideboard, with figured mahogany veneered doors and drawers having mitred oval pattenrs, with recessed center cabinet and flanking end doors, raised on square tapering legs ending in cuffed feet. This sideboard exhibits the perfect ratio of case to legs, and the canted legs conforming to the serpentine shape serve  to smooth the flow of the concave and convex curves, and the oval and circular panels of dark and light wood effectively eliminate any feeling of mass.  New York, circa 1790-1800.

40" high, 72" wide, 26 " deep
