Boston Chippendale Mahogany Dumbwaiter Circa 1760
SHF169
H 31.75in x W 22.25in x D 22.25in
Chippendale mahogany dumbwaiter. Literally meaning “silent waiter,” both tiers revolve in order to provide a full circumference of offerings to guests. Though many people believe that “Lazy Susans” were created in the 1950s and 60s, the spinning serving table can be traced all the way back to the early 18th century in England. This dumb waiter is double tiered, with the small serving surface joined by a turned mahogany column to the larger surface. The stand is supported by three cabriole legs, each with shell-carved knees that terminate in a ball and claw foot. Boston, circa 1760. 31 ¾”H x 22 ¼”diameter (widest tier).
