Sack catalogue description: Hepplewhite applewood china cabinet, beautiful arched crest with rhythmic scrolled fretwork, the center plinth with inlaid star supporting an urn finial; glass doors with diamond-shaped mullions, one drawer in lower section with cupboard doors below and French feet, beautiful amber patina. The secondary wood is long-leaf or hard pine of distinct Southern graining; the contemporary inscription "Lawes" on the underside might refer to William Laws, a cabinetmaker in Montgomery County, Maryland, between Frederick and Washington, D.C., in 1790. For a comparison of fretwork pediments see Baltimore Furniture, 1760–1810, no. 73.
