Superb and rare Hepplewhite sideboard attributed to George Rogers of Concord New Hampshire. The inlaid “broken” columns, the “right side up” bell flowers, the singed squares skirt inlay, the unconnected ovals on the legs are all exactly the same as the two references below. The front of this sideboard is a continuous hyperbolic curve rather than the much more common bow front. (Note the photo looking down on the drawer fronts - the curve is very subtle in the center)
It was purchased directly from the Paige family of Springfield, Mass and a complete genealogy of ownership accompanies the sideboard.
Reference: “Plain & Elegant - Rich & Common (Documented New Hampshire Furniture, 1750 - 1850)” Page 58-59 for an identically decorated desk.
The Magazine Antiques 2009 -- Prickett ad of a larger sideboard also with identical decoration.
