Provenance:Private collection, Indianapolis, Indiana, October 1973 A rare and highly important, 18th-century mahogany sideboard, exhibiting all the finest elements of the renowned Hepplewhite style. Exceptional marquetry inlay work of pateras and scrolls in satinwoods, rosewoods and incredibly rare green-dyed woods adorn the front and top edges. Classic revival elements such as the straight lines, tapered legs, ribbed panels and grecian urn relief are certainly a Hepplewhite creation. A large drawer for storing wine bottles, a shallow one for linen and two others for serving pieces make up the practical elements of this piece. Without question, this masterpiece of the late Georgian period is nothing less than spectacular. Excellent condition. Circa 1785 Sideboards are wonderfully practical and ceremonial dining pieces created in the late 18th Century by the schools of Robert Adams and George Hepplewhite, the masters of furniture design at the time. Hepplewhite was highly influenced by Adams and took his revival style to a new level of design, creating furniture of more refined proportion and tone. His light and elegant style sets his pieces, especially those with delicate marquetry work such as this one, apart from all others and made them instant classics.
