Exceptional Queen Anne carved & figured maple dressing table Philadelphia PA circa 1760, from the Yale University Collection, Mabel Brady Garvan Collection, height 33 inches, top 23" x 42". Provenance: Francis P. Garvan (1875 - 1937), New York; gift to Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut, 1930
Few Queen Anne dressing tables possess the exceptional proportions displayed in this exquisite dressing table. The form is further accentuated with the cabinetmaker's choice of crafting the dressing table from vibrantly figured maple. The original openwork cast brass hardware is the table’s only opulent aspect. It is however the subtle embellishments of a notched corner top, fluted chamfered corners, shell-carved knees and delicate trifid feet that successfully combine to create a synergistic masterpiece.
