American Federal mahogany canterbury, mahogany primary and white pine secondary. Finely turned stile supports with Sheraton legs, concave slats, dovetailed drawer with fine line inlaid cockbeading around drawer edge. 20 3/8" H x 18" W x 14" D. Probably New York, circa 1800. Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis built what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: Abrasions to case, one of the slats with cracks and breaks at corners, losses to inlay around the edges of drawer.
