Description:

Georgian Mahogany Veneer Dressing Table, England, 18th century and later, oak secondary woods, molded top, frieze with three drawers, cabriole legs, ht. 27, wd. 29 1/4, dp. 18 3/4 in.

Literature: This lot is contextualized in Imagining Ichabod: My Journey Into 18th-Century America Through History, Food, and a Georgian House, by Paula Bennett (Bauer and Dean: New York, 2016). Imagining Ichabod is described as a "warm, personal account of life in an eighteenth-century house and the search for its first inhabitants... [which offers] a fascinating glimpse into [the United States'] colonial period and its years as a fledgling republic."
Estimate $200-300
