Cherry wood table with square top / Unknown

Curatorial Remarks

This is a Sheridan style table that may be from the 1840s. It was probably locally made. This is a pre-Civil war style of furniture, and mass produced furniture became abundant after the Civil War. The style of manufacture is congruent with the provenance of the object.
