Boston Classical Pier Table, circa 1818-1825

Item 1354
$6,000

Boston Classical pier table, circa 1818-1825.  Mahogany veneer on white pine with suppressed ball feet encircled by die-rolled brass borders.  The die-rolled gilt-brass moldings filled with lead on this table are typical of a small group of high quality Boston furniture inspired by similar pieces originating in France.  The brass mounts like the ones on this table are discussed in a Magazine Antiques dated May 1995 (pages 732-739).  Also see pages 46 and 47 of Boston in the Age of New-Classicism for a discussion of two other pier tables in this group of furniture.

Dimensions of the granite top: Height – 33 inches from floor                                              Width – 36½ inches
                                             Depth – 17 inches

Condition:  The table is generally in very good condition.  However, some support pieces are replaced as well as the original marble table top.  Most of these pieces of furniture originally had marble tops.  Marble is a compressed material subject to being easily broken.  The current top is granite, a stronger material that is more durable than marble.  The mirror is also replaced.  Brasses are all original.
