Classical Bureau

Antique American Classical Mahogany Bureau circa 1818 - 1825

Boston, Massachusetts area, probably Marblehead, Mass. Cabinetmaker signed "Made by H. Loring jur the First of His Make" over "Finished ...(illegible)." This is probably Henry Loring Junior of Marblehead, Essex County, born Nov. 17, 1800. The inscription is on the bottom of the bottom drawer. This fine chest must be the first by this maker after completing an apprenticeship. The quality of the construction and materials, combined with the specifics of the inscription leave no other explanation.

Ormolu mount of a lady in a chariot, pulled by sheep, on the backsplash. Scratch bead at bottom of splash board. Replaced drawer pulls. Mahogany veneer drawer fronts in alternating grain directions. The top is a fine grained "plum pudding" mahogany. The mahogany sides have beading to create the illusion of paneling. The drawer sides are made of mahogany, with pinpoint dovetailing, exactly as seen on similar pieces attributed to the Rawsons of Providence in May 1982 The Magazine Antiques, page 1162, in an article by Joseph K. Ott. Interestingly, this bureau came from a Rhode Island estate. However the only H. Loring I can find that is a "junior" is the Henry Loring mentioned above. His father Henry was born in Boston and, after marriage, lived in Marblehead.

47 1/2" high, 44 1/2" wide, and 23 1/2" deep
