Joined table with drawer


Not on view

Rectangular tables such as this, with a high stretcher at the front and back and low side stretchers connected by a medial brace, represent a format peculiar to the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. It includes a drawer and is ornamented with shaped brackets and cutouts on all four sides, indicating that it was designed to be freestanding. The legs and stretcher exemplify the turner’s art and resemble the bases of several chests-on-frames thought to have been made in and around Boston.
