Wood Batik Shops, Sideboard


The shallow carved panel on the door features stylized leaves and flowers, which are surrounded by a curved molding and two fluted columns that are repeated on the center drawers, displaying brass drop pulls. Beneath is a scalloped skirt or apron, the cross piece of the H-stretcher has a carved center, and the legs end in a modified ball foot. Several of the sideboard’s features suggest a Jacobean Revival style, one that was popular in the 1920s.
