Title: 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).
