A Fine & Rare William and Mary 17th Century
Six-Legged Lady‚ Dressing Table*
Walnut Substrate and Veneer
1/16‚ Walnut Burl Veneer: cut, then pressed for 6 months
Banding on top is also walnut
Original pulls

Drop (left & right front corners) shows evidence of the veneer forming to the shape of the substrate, which is shrinking as it ages ‚ì as is the veneer ‚ì as may be seen by the slight indentations in the veneer.

Bull nose is at least 1/8‚ veneer (two times the thickness of the veneer on top) cut flat, then bent using steam, then pressed to match the contour.

The legs are solid walnut with their front panels covered with a walnut burl veneer.
Top: Made of sapwood with Marquetry banding of sapwood.*

1‚ flat-cut outside banding and burr walnut 2-piece butterfly central panel.
Note: The worm mark on the front left panel of the drawer is entirely natural.

Given the age of the restoration of the back of one drawer in American wood, this piece must have traveled to American shores with a well-to-do immigrant English family some time before the mid 1800s.

*Sapwood: the white and softer part of wood between the inner bark and the hard wood.

Provenance
Stair, Hudson, NY, 2003. Offered by Gallery Moderne LSL USA LTD.
