A Birch Federal Candlestand with Notched Corners, c.1820
This candlestand has a very stylized cant to the legs, lending a distinctive vertical thrust, which makes it quite appealing. The column is a beautiful elongated baluster turning and the top is composed of a nicely figured solid birch. Note the distinctive finishing at the base of the column, and the incised lines at the top of the legs.
