Sack catalogue description: Sheraton mahogany bow-front serving table of rare small size, the case is fronted by two drawers flanked by cupboard doors each with flame satinwood panels contained in inlaid borders with cut corners and crossbanding, the delicate turned tapered legs with bulbous ring-turned feet and cylindrical collars are in the tradition of Nehemiah Adams of Salem with satinwood panels fronting the stiles; the apron has an inlaid border with an arch under the center drawers, the top has a fine inlaid bordered edge, beautiful golden patina. Attributed to Nehemiah Adams or Nathaniel Appleton; we consider this to be one of the finest expressions of the Salem Sheraton school. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols.
