Federal Carved Mahogany Bookcase with Brass Paw Feet, circa 1805-1810
New York, circa 1805-1810. A rare Sheraton form with rare and distinctive features including thistle carving, brass paw feet and crossbanded cabinet doors in the manner of Duncan Phyfe. Three original fully adjustable shelves. This is the only known example of this form. The pattern of glazing can be seen in plate two of "The Edinburgh Book of Prices for Manufacturing Cabinet-Work," in 1805 and 1811, p.130 and p.296, respectively. Price books were designed to establish the rate or price that master cabinetmakers were to pay their journeymen to make a specific part of a piece of furniture, and by extension, the whole piece. Today, they are useful in documenting what styles were in production at a given time.
