Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this gorgeous early 19th century antique Sheraton Birds Eye Maple & Cherry worktable / nightstand. This is an uncommon form, wider than most and with a lower shelf. Bold Birds Eye Maple was used for the top and drawer face with a heavy figuring. Dendrologists are still unsure about what exactly causes birds Eye figuring and we’ve heard every theory from fungal infections to pecking birds. Regardless of how it came to be, we absolutely love Birds Eye Maple furniture and probably offer more quality Birds Eye & Curly Maple furniture than any other outfit in the country. The stand has a single drawer with wood knobs that nicely contrast the bright maple. The worktable is in very good condition with our only notes being minimal surface wear. The table measures 24” wide x 14 1/2” deep x 28 1/2” tall.
