Hepplewhite Server


A notable style of light, elegant furniture that was fashionable between about 1775 and 1800, Hepplewhite designs are poised, slender shapes with a modest curvilinear physique. With straight legs that taper down to spade feet, this server is a faithful reproduction of balance and geometry. The gentle bow front embellishes the metameristic qualities of the exquisite crotch walnut allowing the light to play across the wood characteristics like ocean waves. The server also boasts the delicate detail of cock beading on the edge of all the doors and drawer fronts as well as traditional brass oval bails which are a distinctive adornment to this style.
