High Sideboard with Hunting Trophies


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This monumental sideboard represents a style of furniture that was popular in the 1850s, after the exhibition of a similar piece at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London. The sideboard was part of a dining-room suite that William T. Walters commissioned through a local furniture maker, likely around the time of his purchase of a large townhouse in Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore in 1857. The carving of the dead game animals is characteristic of the work of German artisans active in this country.
