Mahogany Pier Table attr. Quervelle

Lot 0301 Details

Description
American Classical Carved, Stenciled and Bronze-Mounted Mahogany Pier Table, c. 1825, attr. to Anthony Quervelle, Philadelphia, later walnut top, gadrooned frieze, acanthus and grape-carved scrolled supports with paw feet, mirror back flanked by reeded vasiform columns, shaped plinth, turned and gadrooned feet, h. 39 in., w. 42 in., d. 21 in. Note: The pier table offered here is exemplary of the work of Philadelphia cabinetmaker Anthony G. Quervelle. Retaining its original bronze mounts and gilt stencil decoration, this table features scrolled supports ending in paw feet over a raised plinth, a distinctive element of Quervelle pier tables.
The table is related to several examples illustrated in the Boor publication Philadelphia Empire Furniture. Among these examples, the present lot shares many of the same features as a Quervelle pier table made for the White House under President Andrew Jackson, including the intricately carved scrolled supports, gadrooned molding, gilt stencil decoration, a similarly shaped lower shelf, and lobed feet.
Ref.: Boor. Philadelphia Empire Furniture. University Press of New England, 2006, pp. 231-238 (see p. 237 for Andrew Jackson example). For a discussion on bronze mounts in American Classical furniture, see “Brass Hardware on American Furniture, Part I: Cast Hardware, 1700-1850,” Magazine Antiques, May 1991, p. 948-955.
