A Cherry Candlestand with Drawer, CT, c.1780


Scroll down for 5 more photos

This is a rare form produced during the late 18th century, and somewhat into the early 19th. Many of these candlestands have either lost their drawers or have been modified to add the drawer, as those that originally had one are extremely desirable and scarce. This is a perfect example with no issues whatsoever. It has an old refinish, which now has a mellow cherry color. Many of the columns on these tables are somewhat plain, and this one has a beautifully turned urn typical of Connecticut work. Note how precisely the column is turned. Also, note the beautiful dovetails on the drawer. It was made by a fine cabinetshop. See details. Note the age build-up under the top around the drawer, indicative of the life it has had with oxidization mostly on the exposed surfaces. 

Height: 27 in. Width: 16 1/2 in. Depth: 17 in.
