Writing Table
Inlaid with Carved Fans
Virginia – Probably Piedmont
Circa 1800
26.75″ W x 20.25″ D x 28″ H

This small writing table is extensively yet subtly fitted out.  The top is trimmed with a simple molding on the sides and front with a more complex molding on the underside at the frame.  The waist is trimmed with a simple astragal molding.   Most strikingly, the fans at the corners of the string inlaid drawer are carved.  The combination of stylistic features, form and tapered legs suggest a late 18th or very early 19th century date of origin.
