Sideboard #77
Very fine and rare "D" shaped sideboard with serpentine center sideboard with recessed cupboard, labeled by William Whitehead.This beautiful example of a popular New York form establishes William Whitehead as the most gifted cabinetmaker and designer of the New York Hepplewhite era. The distinctive leg inlay of delicate bellflower and pellet inlay connected by loops has become Whitehead’s trademark. The choice of superb crotch-figured veneer contained in oval and circular double-line inlaid borders creates a flowing continuity within the body of the board. The full labels on this sideboard establish the partially missing labels on the High Museum Masterpiece. New York, circa 1780-1800.

40” high,  72” long, 29" deep
