Rare Sheraton Worktable Featuring Pullout Writing Slide, Original Hardware
Northern New England, probably Vermont
Cherry case and legs, Birdseye maple veneers, mahogany banding, all basswood secondaries
A most unusual and intriguing worktable, possibly unique…slightly projecting top with
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")
