A Classical Figured Mahogany Bookcase Cabinet, Baltimore, Maryland,
This is an important example of Baltimore Classical furniture at its finest.
It makes a profound architectural statement with two highly figured cylinders
resting on reeded beehive feet indicative of Baltimore and the work of Needles
and others. The cylinder sides open to reveal additional bookshelves, all of
which flanks diamond mullioned doors separated vertically by a drawer. The swan
neck pediment is quite interesting as it related to other work in Baltimore,
e.g. a sideboard illustrated inClassical Maryland 1815-1845, fig.164 . Also,
the use of columns is illustrated inClassical America 1815-1845, item 61 .
Lastly, a sideboard attributed to Anthony Quervelle, see attached.
Finally, special mention should be made of the finials, which are sand casted
and truly monumental. Also, please view the details below. As you can see, the
sides are fully mortised into the base, indicative of the first rate cabinetry
throughout. This a great expression of Baltimore cabinetwork and a treasure in
