Early 19th C. British Colonial Sideboard from Jamaica, West Indies, c 1820

A Magnificent and Massive Early 19th Century British Colonial Plantation Sideboard from the Island of Jamaica in the West Indies. It dates from the George IV Period and was made of solid Mahogany that was Hand-Carved by Slaves on the Plantation, c.1820. The Top of the Sideboard was made from one huge single slab of Mahogany and is 6 foot long, over two foot wide and more than two inches thick. The Front of the Sideboard bears the typical Central Square flanked by boldly carved Horizontal lines. It rests on four boldly carved and turned legs with the multiple rings and barley-twist or twisted-rope design that is characteristic of Early 19th Century Jamaican Colonial and West Indian Colonial Plantation Furniture. In fact the hand-carved designs on the legs are exactly the same found on the posts of Early 19th Century Jamaican Four-Poster Plantation Beds of the same period. This item is one of several splendid pieces of Early 19th Century Jamaican Colonial Furniture being sold and is from the famous Ashmeade-Hawkins Collection. This Magnificent and Massive Early 19th Century Jamaican Colonial Plantation Sideboard originally came from the 18th Century Great House of an old Sugar Plantation near Montego Bay, Jamaica. It had belonged to the same prominent old British Colonial family for almost 200 years. As most serious Dealers and Collectors know the majority of 18th and Early 19th Century West Indian Colonial Furniture is handed down as family heirlooms from generation to generation by the old British and French Colonial families on their Plantations in the Caribbean and seldom comes on the Market. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a fine example at a very reasonable cost.
