Pine Dressing Table

Antique American Pine Dressing Table

Circa 1820 - 1830, probably Providence, Rhode Island

Signed by the maker: "M D Stow", "Made By M D Stow", and "Sartition"

Moses Dresser Stow was born 1804 in Charlton, Mass., listed as a Providence cabinetmaker in 1826, died 1882, and is buried in East Greenwich Cemetary.

Scrolled backsplash over three small drawers stepped back over two larger drawers. Scrolled skirt. Ovolo corners and turned legs. Mahogany knobs. Bowed front. Possibly originally painted white with gold highlights. The inscriptions are hidden from view, but can be seen by removing the top section.

"Sartition" might be a misspelling of sortition, and could be a politically motivated inscription or a notation indicating that the piece was meant to be sold by lottery, perhaps by The New England Charitable Mechanics Association.
