Made in the American South and found in North Carolina, this small scale, antique sideboard, hunt board or console table has three drawers with brass bail handles on square tapering legs. Note the unusual design of the deep center drawer which continues through the molding. The molding also continues on the back side so the table may have been a center table. It is crafted in the the English Hepplewhite taste favored by furniture designers in the Carolinas and Virginia. Note the very thick plank top, with unusually thick back panels. The legs are incised with darkened lines to simulate string inlay. Secondary wood: Southern pine.
