Description

This small-scale sideboard has fabulous paneled doors and drawers of crotch mahogany that have developed a remarkable golden brown patina over time. It is interesting to note that while many of these sideboards are quite deep, this one is very narrow, (20 1/2 in. in the middle, which steps back on each of the ends to 19 in.). This sideboard is a tour de force of inlay work. Please note that the foot tapers to within ½ an inch square, and is inlaid with a beautiful panel of Bird’s eye maple. The top is banded at the edge along the front and sides  as is the front of the backsplash. While this is a splashy sideboard with all bells and whistles, it is also very practical in storage, with bottle drawers and three middle drawers. All this, and yet the countenance of the piece is quite feminine and diminutive.

The surface is a very early--if not original--one which is old and dry and left alone over time. Note, the bottom of the feet are darkened where a mop probably deposited some wax, etc. and here we choose to not disturb this piece as it is rare that we come across such a clean, untouched piece.

Servin g Height: 42 3/4 in. Height: 46 1/2in. Depth: 20 1/2 in. Width: 64 3/4in.
