This is an important example of Baltimore Classical furniture at its finest. It makes a profound architectural statement with two highly figured cylinders resting on reeded beehive feet indicative of Baltimore and the work of Needles and others. The cylinder sides open to reveal additional bookshelves, all of which flanks diamond mullioned doors separated vertically by a drawer. The swan neck pediment is quite interesting as it related to other work in Baltimore.
Finally, special mention should be made of the finials, which are sand casted and truly monumental. Also, please view the details below. As you can see, the sides are fully mortised into the base, indicative of the first rate cabinetry throughout. This a great expression of Baltimore cabinetwork and a treasure in any collection.
