18th Century Philadelphia
Queen Anne Dressing Table, Lowboy
Pennsylvania, circa 1730-1750
Walnut, white cedar and poplar - SOLD


18th Century Philadelphia Queen Anne Dressing Table, Lowboy
Pennsylvania, circa 1730-1750
Walnut, white cedar and poplar, entire view 1

A rare and lovely dressing table related to a yet to be conclusively identified group of
high chests and dressing tables by “The Elusive Joiner”, an accomplished craftsman
highly skilled in the development of scale and form. The beautifully proportioned case
features the graceful integration of transitional William and Mary (early Baroque) design
elements that speak to its successful design and early date. The [ 33.75 by 20 7/8-inch]
molded overhanging top with notched front corners is over the (17 7/8 by 29 7/8-inch]
case containing three short drawers, each retaining original brass hardware. The
rhythmic treatment of the skirt with its high central Persian arch is common to this small
group of furniture; an incised bead conforms to the front and masterful side profiles. The
front and side apron profiles transition seamlessly as a continuum of the inside lines of
the sawn cabriole legs resting on outstanding ankleted Spanish feet.

See: The American Philosophical Society, APS Library Bulletin, Winter 2001;
Philadelphia Cabinetmaking and Commerce, 1718-1753: The Account Book of John
Head, Joiner
by Jay Robert Stiefel. Figure 18, a high chest on cabriole legs with
Spanish feet and with identical apron is pictured and discussed. Figures 26, 27, and 28
depict dressing tables from this group owned by Dr. Richard Mones, Private Collections
and Skip Chalfant; also, a high chest in the Stenton Mansion Museum, Philadelphia
country home of James Logan, colonial Mayor of Philadelphia and Chief Justice of
the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
