Included in the upcoming Online Only Decorative Arts Auction, offered by Pook & Pook, Inc., is a Pennsylvania Sheraton tiger maple and cherry chest. The Sheraton style, popular in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, has a simpler, cleaner look than Queen Anne and Chippendale furniture. American craftsmen often used local woods to create contrasting veneers in their pieces, as seen in this tall chest. Other Pennsylvania furniture available in this sale includes a two-part Pennsylvania Dutch cupboard and several painted pine dry sinks. Used before the invention of indoor plumbing, dry sinks held a basin and pitcher above a storage cabinet.
A silver teapot, sugar, and creamer set from the 19th century is also featured in this auction. Possibly attributed to American silversmith Gerardus Boyce, each piece has a twisted handle and braided accents. Several stoneware jugs with cobalt decorations are available as well, including one stamped S. Hart Fulton. A country store floor display rack, Amish fiber arts, and other Pennsylvania antiques round out the sale. Visit Bidsquare to browse the complete catalog and register to bid.
