Description

With a center silver drawer flanked by cupboards, this serpentine sideboard, while highly attractive, doesn't at first appear unusual. It is on closer inspection that one is treated to the realization that it is constructed of solid mahogany. Most sideboards of this period employ lesser woods behind a veneer of mahogany. To be sure, most antique English sideboards have mahogany solids used in framework and sides, but cabinetmaker who made this one chose to use mahogany throughout the whole construction. Perhaps this was a commissioned piece, or he was just showing off on a speculative piece; either way, this is not your average sideboard.

Circa 1840, its measurements are: eight: 38.5", Width: 66", Depth: 25"

Price: $ 21,750
