AMERICAN FEDERAL MAHOGANY TILTING CANDLE STAND
Probably Rhode Island or Connecticut c. 1805-15
Item # 303JNU16P


This is such a clean and pleasing design with it's pure and undistracted form. The top is crafted of an octagonal solid plank of mahogany, the edges squared and rigid, the glowing grains running in smooth parallel rays. The top tilts using the dowels integral to the head of the pedestal, these tenoned into the chamfered cleats on either side.  These are untouched with original hand filed iron screws in each.  The table locks in a rested position with it's original clasp and catch hardware - both are undisturbed and hold the table for a firm surface. The turned pedestal is the finest part of this table, divided into carefully calculated scratched-bead bands amongst ring turnings, focused primarily over the swollen turned baluster. The legs are delicate with a high lift, the bold knees curving into crisply carved spade feet; each joins into the pedestal with large dovetails beneath metal strips highlighted by rather distinct scalloping.

It is an absolute treasure for anyone passionate about clean and unbroken lines. 

Measurements: top dimensions are 14 3/4" x 21 3/8"; 28 5/8" high in rested position; 40" high tilted.

Condition Report:
Refinished. Two plugged screws in baluster, some cracks and repairs to the base.  Very minor surface wear.
