Sideboard
Mahogany, Mahogany Veneers
Kentucky, probably Fleming County
circa 1825
87″ x 44.5″ x 25″

The Classical sideboard was purchased, in Fleming County, Kentucky by descendants of Kentucky portrait artist Oliver Fraser ( 1808-1864) and Kentucky arts historian Edna Talbott Whitney.  The sideboard and its Fleming County origin was documented in Whitley’s 1969 publication, A Checklist of Kentucky Cabinet Makers from 1775 to 1859.   A  photo of the sideboard can be found in the Illustrations Section, photo “SS”.

A sideboard with very similar turnings and almost certainly from the same cabinet shop is illustrated in Collecting Kentucky, page 322.  This sideboard has a Boyle County provenance.

Provenance:  Descended in the family of Edna Talbott Whitney.
