Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this fantastic early 19th century antique Federal Period Mahogany candlestand. A superb piece of Mahogany was used for the top and it has a very wild grain. The top has scalloped edges and the pedestal has an elegant, refined turning pattern with generous proportions. The table has a triple leg base that flares out & curls up at the ends. We’re pretty sure this is a Boston table but have also handled similar examples from surrounding cities like Salem. The legs are dovetailed into the column and have had a few reinforcements done over the years so the table is nice & sturdy. The left batten on the back has an old repair & there’s a small shellac fill on the top and minor surface wear from a placemat that shows up as a light grid panel at certain angles. We have this in our office & it’s not noticeable inside, but we go out of our way to show the angles that DO show the wear. The top is ever so slightly warped but that’s not unusual for a 200 year old piece of Mahogany in a foreign climate. When the table is flipped up like in our gallery picture the table measures 18 1/4” wide x 14 1/2” deep x 40 3/4” tall. When the top is flipped down the table measures 18 1/4” wide x 21 3/4” deep x 30” tall.
