AMAZING NH/MAINE PROVENANCE ATTACHED!
According to several handwritten provenances that appear on its interior (see photos),
this fine country AYER - BRADLEY family tea table was made by the DEACON JOHN
KIMBALL* (1739-1817) of Concord, New Hampshire as a wedding gift for his sister-in-
law HANNAH AYER (born Aug. 25, 1751) and JOHN BRADLEY (born Feb. 13, 1743)
upon their marriage in or around 1770. Also appearing on the table is the stamp of "G.B.
BARROWS" who was GEORGE BRADLEY BARROWS (born Fryeburg, Maine 1822),
whose mother ANNA AYER BRADLEY BARROWS (wife of John Stuart Barrows of
Fryeburg) was the daughter of Hannah and John Bradley. The table was found in
Fryeburg, Maine in 1968.

* Deacon John Kimball of Concord married Anna Ayer (born 1740) of Haverhill, Mass,
the second eldest sister of Hannah Ayer Bradley. *Hannah Ayer Bradley was the
seventh of eleven children of Samuel and Ann Hazzen Ayer of Haverhill, Massachusetts

Redware Jug, Osborn Pottery, Gonic, NH, Rare Small Size, Beautifully Potted, underside view



Paint Decorated Schoolgirl Academy Worktable, Massachusetts
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.
Date/Period: Circa 1821 (Drawer is signed and dated)


Paint Decorated Schoolgirl Academy Worktable, Massachusetts, entire view

Measurement: (Height: 28.5"; top: 21 by 16")

Material: Curly maple and Northeastern white pine

Condition: 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.

Additional Information: 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).
