The Tilghman Family Chippendale carved mahogany and marble-top pier table, Philadelphia, PA or Maryland, circa 1765

Item Description:

Appears to retain original marble top.

Provenance:

Main Line estate.
Sotheby's, January 23, 2010, Lot 547.
Collection of Rear Admiral Edward P. Moore and Barbara Bingham Moore, 1955.
David Stockwell, Wilmington, Delaware, purchased from a direct Tilghman descendent.
By tradition, this table has been associated with Colonel Tench Tilghman (1744-1786), The Heritage, Talbot County, Maryland. However, it has been suggested that it may have descended in the family of Richard Tilghman of Queen Anne County, Maryland, and may have a Maryland origin. A catalogue published by the Baltimore Museum of Art in 1968 compared the carving on the legs of this table to Maryland Chippendale high chests.

Dimensions:

H: 29 in. W: 47 in. D: 24 in.

Literature:

Tench Tilghman was born in Talbot County, Maryland. He served in the Revolutionary War as a trusted aide-de-camp of General George Washington and rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel. At Tilghman's early death at the age of 41, Washington wrote, "none could have felt his death with more regard than I did, because no one entertained a higher opinion of his worth." Tilghman was an original member of the Maryland Society of the Cincinnati.
