Sack catalogue description: Pair of Hepplewhite mahogany inlaid console tables, the semicircular frames are inlaid with rectangular panels of checkered borders and wavy fan quadrants flanked by burl veneered inlaid panels on the stiles, the legs with a rare bulb and diamond inlay. Attributed to the Harrisonburg-Staunton area of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley; the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts suggests the possibility of authorship of these tables to be Christian Beur (active ca. 1780–1800), who worked near Churchville in Augusta county, Virginia.
