Oh What a Fragment! Tour de force of Period Carving
Possibly Hudson River Valley or New Jersey, ca. 18th century. Poplar with traces of thin blue paint. Crisply, beautifully, and deeply carved including pinwheels, central fan, and quarter fans. Ends are dovetailed, and back-bottom has a dado-channel, so this fragment appears to have been a drawer front or architectural element. About 35 1/2 inches long x 6 wide x 1 ΒΌ deep.
