Boston Federal Mahogany Sideboard Attributed to John & Thomas Seymour, Ca. 1810

Item Details

This sideboard has the proportions and the vibrant mahogany veneers typical of the Boston cabinet shop of John and Thomas Seymour. The father and son team are the most celebrated Boston cabinetmakers of the Federal period. From the last decade of the 18th Century through the first quarter of the 19th Century, they produced furniture for Boston’s elite. The specific form of the sideboard, with an amphitheater shaped deck top above a central arch, has long been identified with their work. Additionally, the distinctive segmented reeding and turnings of the legs are identical to other labeled examples from the Seymour shop.
