Title: Important and Rare Toilet Table, Original Red Painted Surface
Portsmouth, New Hampshire Area
Date/Period: Circa 1790


Important and Rare Toilet Table, Original Red Painted Surface Portsmouth, New Hampshire Area, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 29”; Width: 36”; Depth: 20.75”

Material: Northeastern white pine

Condition: Excellent, original throughout

Additional Information: Toilet tables, cloth covered dressing tables were designed to
be draped in silk, satins, velvet, or tissue. They were made of simple form and soft
woods. The major element in the design of these tables is the highly exaggerated ogee
curved top. By the Federal period, every woman mindful of her social standing had a
toilet table in her bed chamber.

The top with flowing cyma reversa front and cyma recta sides features a most
generous overhang and is raised on delicate square Chippendale legs having outside
beaded edges and chamfered inner edges. The legs are mortised to receive the apron
tenon. This table retains its original red paint and displays a dry surface.
