An early dressing table with drawers flanked by chamfered quarter columns and a shaped Queen Anne skirt. The top has a molded edge and cut corners. The highly carved cabriole legs have shells with incised lines and fully developed graduated bellflowers below and terminate in trifid feet. The brasses appear original. Secondary woods are poplar and cedar. The carving on the table is attributed to the shop of Samuel Harding. A common feature found in Harding's carvings is the use of an incised line in the shell. A nineteenth century jelly label on the inside of the long drawer says "FROM THE WEST FAMILY HOUSE ON FRONT STREET", possibly that of Benjamin West. CONDITION: At least five of the knee blocks have been restored and there is a patch to the proper right rear foot. Several drawer runners are replaced. Several drawer lip repairs. Top reset.The dressing table represents the best of Philadelphia craftsmanship and creativity in the Queen Anne style. PROVENANCE: Joe Kindig Antiques.
