Provenance: The Friedle-Garrison Collection, New Orleans.
Note: The New York City firm of Deming and Bulkley, established by cousins Brazilia Deming and Erastus Bulkley, manufactured high-style Empire furniture that was sought after by the wealthiest of New Yorkers. The firm later expanded to Charleston, South Carolina by opening a retail shop on the affluent King Street, which sold its lavish New York-made furniture alongside interior luxury imports. In 1852, Bulkley went on to partner with Gustav Herter, of the famed Herter Brother firm.
Featuring extravagant gilt stenciling, a shaped lower plinth, and lobed feet, and the same overall proportions, the pier table offered here relates closely to a Deming and Bulkley example documented by Cynthia Moyer in the article “Finish Conservation on a Deming and Bulkley, circa 1825 New York Classical pier table: An evolution.”
