Note: The table offered here is identical in form, decoration, and proportions to a center table labeled by New York cabinetmakers John and Joseph W. Meeks, sold in these rooms on July 16, 2016. The printed paper label on the latter sold table bears the addresses of the company's wareroom and manufactory at 43 & 45 Broad Street in New York City and at 23 Chartres Street in New Orleans. In 1821, Joseph W. Meeks opened a warehouse in New Orleans and city directories listed the Meeks branch at 29 Chartres Street in 1830, 29 Chartres Street and 39 Royal Street in 1834, and 23 Chartres Street in 1838.
While center tables in a variety of designs are illustrated in the famous Meeks broadside of 1833, none exhibit the bold architectural quality of the present lot, distinguished by the complexly molded frieze and concave-sided standard. The collection of the New York State Museum in Albany includes a similar center table with a Meeks paper label bearing the addresses of No. 14 Vesey Street, New York, and 23 Chartres Street, New Orleans.

286. Eight American Gothic Carved Mahogany Dining Chairs, c. 1845, possibly Charles Baudouine (act. 1829-c.1854), New York, incl. two armchairs and six side chairs, shaped pierced crest rail with lobed fans, splats surmounted by ogee arches, trapezoidal seat, shaped legs, retaining old attractive finish. $1500/2500
Note: Gothic Revival chairs with s-shaped front legs and splats surmounted by ogee arches have been attributed to New York City cabinetmakers such as Alexander Roux and John & Joseph W. Meeks. The chairs in the current lot are distinguished by a shaped crest rail with peaks and lobed fans. Additionally, moldings outline the ogee arches as well as the splats. These details are not found on chairs by Roux or by J. and J.W. Meeks. Features such as the lobed fans and moldings are found individually on chairs made by Charles A. Baudouine, including a set of forty-two rosewood chairs produced around 1845 for the State Dining Room of the White House during the administration of President James K. Polk, and a pair of armchairs that were part of a rosewood parlor suite supplied in 1849 to Betsy Hart of Troy, New York.

Note: Each drop leaf is inscribed with brass inlay "Ala/Snta:Julia./Wadington" and "El/General/Guilarte." The table was possibly commissioned as a gift from Julia Wadington to General Eusebio Guilarte of Bolivia. Guilarte briefly served as President of Bolivia from 1847 to 1848.

Note: The pair of sofas in the present lot feature the same overall form, proportions, and distinctively modeled shell carvings as a sofa from the Arlington Mansion in Natchez, Mississippi made by Philadelphia cabinetmaker Charles H. White. Like many Philadelphia and New York cabinetmakers, White had a robust clientele in Southern cities such as New Orleans, Charleston, and Natchez, where the wealthy planter class sought out the finest Classical furnishings for their extravagant Greek Revival mansions. Northern cabinetmakers, including White, crafted pieces specifically for the Southern market—the sofas offered here, though made in Philadelphia, were likely made for the parlor of a grand Southern home.
