A Carved Black Cherry Classical Tilt-top Table, New
possibly Salem, c.1820
This small tilt-top table
is composed of a beautiful dark cherry. It has a fine,
and highly desirable dishtop edge. The column is superbly
carved with acanthus leafage and undercut, carved
leaves and carved ring turning above (see
detail). The scrolled feet have an interesting
carved design with punchwork throughout (see
detail). This is a finely constructed table, certainly
designed as a table of great beauty and treasured
through the years as it is in perfect condition with
no repairs or restorations, whatsoever. While we consider
this a New England table, the column and leafage is
very reminiscent of Salem work.
