Mahogany and Walnut with Poplar Secondary
42 ¾” x 72 x 28 ½”
This highly rare and unusual New York serpentine sideboard is a wonderful example of a six-husk inlaid tapered leg sideboard. Featuring a figured serpentine top over a serpentine façade, the sideboard has four drawers all with original brass pulls. Along with mahogany, the piece contains a fan, a quarter fan, and figured panels with reserves of striped walnut. The inlay of the sideboard is exquisite. The piece has very highly figured veneers.
