Baltimore Federal Japanned Needlework Table

$ 5,000
  • Description
    An American Federal period needlework or sewing table from Baltimore. Lockable drawer, slide accessible cloth 'purse', turned cross stretchers; with original painted surface and brass casters. The stenciling on all four friezes and corners, and simplicity of the Japanned courtiers, are consistent with painted Middle Atlantic or Southern pieces of this genre. The carriage painting shop of J. & H. Finlay of Baltimore routinely offered paint decorated furniture in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. This table is an early specimen of their work on a sewing table from the 1790's.
