A Red Paint Decorated Hutch Table
New England, Circa 1830s
White pine, with original red paint surface
Height: 28 1/4; depth: 18; top: 38 1/2 x 44 inches
Rectangular top raised on four baluster and ring-turned legs joined by a shelf, on shaped feet, with red painted surface throughout.
The presence of a shelf is a rare feature of hutch tables and distinguishes this table from others. It benefits
additionally by the survival of its original red-painted surface. A hutch table once in the Fuessenich Collection that demonstrates similarly turned legs is illustrated in Wallace
Nutting, Furniture Treasury, vols. I and II (New York, 1928), no. 1208.
