A very rare early Queen Anne tiger maple Spanish foot dressing table, probably Boston, circa 1725-40.
This antique Queen Anne dressing table has pleasing proportions, dramatic maple grain and survives in superb condition. The Spanish foot is a style popularized during the William & Mary period and carried over into some early Queen Anne forms such as this table. These examples are very well developed with grace form and crisp carving. The molded overhanging top has incurved corners and is constructed of vibrant tiger maple. The case has a single long drawer above three short drawers and a nicely shaped apron. The apron joins cabriole legs with shaped returns on terrific Spanish feet. This form of dressing table, constructed of tiger maple and with Spanish feet, was produced from New England through Pennsylvania. The secondary woods found on this table are almost exclusively white pine, which support a Boston attribution. Also known as a Queen Anne lowboy, this form, particularly in tiger maple, is highly desirable to collectors of early American furniture.
Dimensions: Case width 28 1/4"; Height 31 1/8"
