LATE 18TH CENTURY ANTIQUE FEDERAL PERIOD TIGER MAPLE & CHERRY CORNER WASH STAND WITH CURVED FRONT. With our absolute highest compliments Bay Colony Antiques takes the utmost pleasure in presenting the finest antique wash stand we have ever offered for sale. This stand is a masterpiece created at the height of the American federal design movement sometime toward the end of the 18th century. The finest tiger maple and old growth cherry wood was selected by the original cabinetmaker to produce one of the rarest and most desirable stands of the entire era. We have had the privilege of owning many exceptional corner wash stands throughout decades of continued operation and this particular stand is our absolute career favorite.
The stand features a single dovetailed drawer with an embossed brass pull and detailed tiger maple panels flanking the central drawer. Each of the cherry supports and the four legs are expertly turned and the stand overall is in near perfect condition with respect to the considerable amount of history it has survived through. It is our sincere hope that this wash stand will find a home in a collection where it will be safeguarded for many years to come and we look forward to finding such a deserving home for this remarkable antique.
The stand measures 26" wide x 18 3/4" deep x 29 1/2 tall. We are a wholly owned family business in our third decade of continuous operation.
