HEPPLEWHITE INLAID MAHOGANY SERPENTINE BUREAU

The oblong top with exaggerated serpentine front edge and string edging above a conforming case with inlaid light-wood stringing at every edge, having four graduated drawers each with string inlay and original brass bale-handle pulls with oval stamped brass back plates, above a string-edged double cyma-shaped apron extending to tall flared French bracket feet. Below the bottom drawer is a plain triple-string inlay strip with a wider dark mid section between light wood strings. This inlay motif is identified by Charles Montgomery as no. 66, typical of New York and New Jersey. The drawers and case bottom share a distinctive blocking technique with small 1½ inch blocks spaced at about 2 inch intervals along the front edge where the bottoms meet the serpentine front of the case.
