Oval Top Tavern Table,
New England, Circa 1730 – 1750, Red Wash White pine and ash, a nice form in old dry surface… - SOLD



Although rarely encountered, the use of ash legs is sometimes found on Boston highboys. The Oval top raised on double-splayed block and ring-turned reverse-tapered legs resting on button feet; joined by plain apron and box stretcher. The red paint was likely refreshed during the 19th century when a neatly fashioned cleat with tapered ends was added; likely to facilitate the removal of slight cupping of top. We commissioned our expert cabinetmaker to carefully remove the top and photograph all aspects. The top appears to be the first and only top secured with original wooden pegs; cleat is affixed to top by square cut nails and a combination of handmade screws and later screws.
