A Red Paint Decorated Hutch Table, New England, Circa 1830s

Category:

White pine, with original red paint surface. Height: 28 ¼; depth: 18; top: 38 ½ x 44 inches

Rectangular top raised on four baluster and ring-turned legs joined by a shelf, on shaped feet, with red painted surface throughout.

The presence of a shelf is a rare feature of hutch tables and distinguishes this table from others. It benefits additionally by the survival of its original red-painted surface. A hutch table once in the Fuessenich Collection that demonstrates similarly turned legs is illustrated in Wallace Nutting, Furniture Treasury, vols. I and II (New York, 1928), no. 1208.

Provenance:
Elliott and Grace Snyder Antiques, South Egremont, Massachusetts
