An impressive early Empire server with a fully veneered satinwood front, New York or Pennsylvania, circa 1840.
This attractive server has a front facade that is completely veneered in satinwood. This opulent use of costly satinwood is unprecedented, as it was typically reserved for inlays and fine detail work. The server attains an intense level of flamboyance from the effect of the vibrant wood grain. The server has a raised splash back with book-matched crotch veneers and a pair of deck drawers. The front apron has a bank of three rounded drawers, also with vibrant satinwood fronts. A pair of turned balusters with scrolled capitals flank four paneled cabinet doors. The drawers and cabinets are each mounted with period floral pressed pulls. The server rests on boldly turned legs with a stack of rings above a tapering ball-top spindle.
