Southern red painted pine huntboard or server, pegged and square nail construction, comprised of a narrow rectangular overhanging top, scrubbed, with rounded corners, above three drawers with wood pulls, the center drawer with brass escutcheon; paneled sides; all raised on tall square tapered legs. 36 1/2" H x 65 1/2" W x 19 1/4" D. Likely 2nd half 19th century and later. CONDITION: General wear, loss of paint to the top. Back board appears to be an ill-fitting replacement. Alligatoring to paint surface. Lower boards of frame (drawer supports) with staining, cracking and insect damage. Some losses to tips of front feet. Traces of old paint in unlikely places, suggesting this piece may have multiple replaced elements or may be recently assembled from old wood.
