molded edge above a case featuring a small drawer above cubby flanked by short
drawers. The lower case with pullout writing/work slide above a pair of graduated
drawers…engaged turned frontal quarter columns continuing to rope-twist legs raised
on brass casters. Competent construction, very clean; tight grain fissure to top which
doesn’t distract. The brass casters have been replaced recently; ex-owner is looking for
the original. (Height: 40.5"; writing height: 31.5"; width: 24.5"; depth: 19")

Early 19th Century One Drawer Stand, Sheraton Table, Carved, Original Red
Upper Connecticut River Valley, Probably Hanover or Lebanon, NH Area
Probably Owned by the Honorable Silas Wright
Date/Period: 1810-1825 - SOLD


Early 19th Century One Drawer Stand, Sheraton Table, Carved, Original Red Upper Connecticut River Valley, Probably Hanover or Lebanon, NH Area Probably Owned by the Honorable Silas Wright, entire view

Measurement: Height: 27.5"; top: 20" x 16.75"

Material: Cherry, maple, pine, and poplar, drawer front in dark stain is solid birds eye maple

Condition: The top displays a few trivial stains and minor surface thinning at center,
else fine and entirely original.

Additional Information: An intriguing table featuring ambitious carving and turning
likely made on a trajectory between Hanover-Lebanon, NH, and Montpelier, VT, which
aligns somewhat with Silas Wright's own path. The rectangular top with ovolo corners
projects above a plain apron having single drawer retaining original brass pull. Its all
about the legs…the corner blocks featuring most unusual, perhaps unique carved
glyphs on all facings…continuing to ring turning above a highly developed tulip-like
device displaying petals…above a reel carving centering a compressed balls having
concentric rings. The tapering spiral turned leg continues to an elongated reel turning,
and a compressed ball seated on peg foot. Outstanding dry red surface.

Pasted within the drawer is a small period label reading: “Silas Wrights” and a 19th
century two page article titled, “Hon. Silas Wright” by Dr. Franklin B. Hough.

It is possible, perhaps likely that this table was owned by Wright (1795-1847).

Wright was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, raised in Weybridge, Vermont and
graduated from Middlebury College in 1815. He was a lawyer, friend, and supporter of
Martin Van Buren, politician, surrogate judge, and brigadier general in the New York
State militia.
1. 1. Wright became a member of the Albany Regency, the coterie of friends and
supporters of Martin Van Buren who led New York's Democratic Party beginning
in the 1820s. As his career progressed, he served in the United States House of
Representatives (1827–1829), as State Comptroller (1829–1833), and U.S.
Senator (1833–1844). In the Senate, Wright became chairman of the Finance
Committee, a post he held from 1836 to 1841. In 1844, Van Buren lost the
Democratic presidential nomination to James K. Polk; Polk supporters
nominated Wright for vice president as a way to attract Van Buren's support to
the ticket, but Wright declined. Later that year he was elected governor, and he
served one two-year term. Defeated for reelection in 1846, he retired to his
home in Canton. He died in Canton in 1847 and was buried at Old Canton
Cemetery. 1. Wikipedia
