Sewing Stand, Soap Hollow, Pennsylvania, initialed “C.K.” and dated 1879


Pine and poplar with original paint. 14 x 9 ¼ x 7¾ inches

This extremely rare form in Soap Hollow furniture is a classic. Bracket feet with large base molding are traditional on many different forms of these makers’ furniture. In addition to being so scarce, the stand has freehand decorations with stenciled initials and date on a yellow ground color, making this one of the finest extant examples of Soap Hollow furniture.
