This worktable has about the finest carving to be found on this form. At this period, these popular worktables, which fit nicely next to armchair or sofa, were manufactured by many shops in New England and were of varying quality.

Please note the fabulous carving on the legs and post (as shown above) which make this piece truly a compact joy to behold. Note, the very fine handmade dovetails. This piece is far from a machine-made knockoff. There are three drawers, the top of which reveals a writing tablet and mirror under its top. The mahogany is highly figured and this table is in superb original condition.

Height: 30 3/4 in. Width: 22 1/4 in. Depth: 18 1/4 in.
