Oak Sideboard w/ Carved Lady Figures and Claw Feet

Carved caryatids flanking the beveled mirror and supporting the over mantle frieze are well executed. The top of the frieze shows a well balanced run of carved rings and biscuits culminated by a flat facing scroll.

The caryatids flanking the mirror are often referred to as Jenny Lind figures. In research and study, which I do a lot of, I believe this depiction to be Joan of Arc. It has been used on furniture for centuries. In the USA we see this figure in bust or head shot on Victorian furniture from the mid 1800s into the early 1900s.

The last three pictures show this quarter sawn or tiger oak sideboard unrestored. Restoration is complete as the first few pictures show. Made around 1885-90. Oak and quarter sawn oak.

Restoration on a piece like this would cost around 850-1200 if brought to a shop and this has been properly restored. Everything is smooth, including the interiors of the drawers.

We also have an oak curved glass china cabinet with matching caryatids.
