This Baltimore style table is based upon a similar table in the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum. The most notable difference is that the original model is a games table, whereas this side table is taller, with a drawer concealed in the frieze.

Baltimore Armchair

Baltimore Armchair

The chair shown above is one from a set of ten; each chair has a different “house portrait” painted on the back.   The images were painted in a somewhat naive style, in an attempt to replicate the look of the original antique furniture from which they were taken.
