Description: c. 1810. This is a rare and beautiful sideboard in the bombe form which, in American Furniture, is seen in earlier Boston Chippendale forms. If it weren't for the secondary woods, which are clearly American, one would consider it continental, as this is a very popular French form. However, the secondaries of poplar and pine place its origin in New World. The tell-tale New York style reeding on the legs and lower shelf also point to an American origin and probably New York.
