This Russell Side Table from Hickory Chair is part of their Winterthur Country Estate collection. From the library and antiques found in the Winterthur Museum, this collection pays homage to great American design. Henry Francis du Pont's vision of assembling the greatest examples of American furnishings into authentic room settings lives on in Hickory Chair's reproductions and adaptations. Combined in groupings or used individually, many of these timeless forms may be personalized through a wide range of finish options.
When the du Pont house became the Winterthur Museum in 1951, the du Ponts moved to a Regency-style home built just across the lawn. The new home was decorated with English and French antiques du Pont had acquired early in his career as a collector, including a neoclassical-style pier table with delicately tapered legs and graceful concave facade. Inspired by that piece, Hickory Chair’s artists have designed a distinctive side table by combining the silhouette of the pier table with the reeded drawer front of a Pennsylvania side table in the collection that dates to about 1800.
The table is 28 inches high, 33 inches wide, and 17.75 inches deep. It comes standard with the Oxford finish shown here, and it features two antique brass drop pulls but can also be customized with one pull if desired.
