Antique Worktable, Federal Period Schoolgirl Paint Decorated, Original Decoration
Massachusetts, circa 1821 (Drawer is signed and dated)
Curly maple and pine
The elegant and fashionable Federal lady’ s two-drawer worktable features a slightly projecting
top with ovolo-corners above a case containing two beaded drawers; the case is raised on
delicately tapered and finely turned ring, baluster, and spool legs terminating with peg-feet
beneath spool and compressed ball turning. The panels and drawer fronts are ornamented with
landscapes and classical ruins, each vignette centered by leafy floral border; a wonderful floral
and leaf garland spirals each leg. Closely related ornamentation is found on examples produced
at Mrs. Rawson’ s School, Boston Neck, Roxbury, and Newburyport, Massachusetts. For a
closely related, nearly identical table [and decoration by Elizabeth Perkins] see Woman’s
Painted Furniture 1790-1830 – American Schoolgirl Art by Betsy Krieg Salam, pp. 155-161.
(University Press of New England, 2010).
The decoration and surface are original and generally fine, there are no traces of decoration on
the top. The top drawer was originally fitted; partitions are missing; turned wooden pulls appear
to be early working-period replacements. The underside of one drawer displays script and a
charming sketch of a well-dressed family of four… quite likely done during the period. We can
read, “This was painted M.W. K_______ - Anno Domini 1821” Additional script is evident and
will require infrared photography enabling transcription.
