k \ THE JOURNAL Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016 7 An antiques collector in Northumberland County pur- chased this Regency sofa table many years ago, and the Sheraton chair more recently. The wood of the table Is mahogany, and the finish is original. The chair has an original faux finish with stenciled decoration. The seat is hand-caned, and in good condition. The sofa table often may be termed a tea table. It is an excellent example of the style and period, dating from the time of the Regency of Prince George, known as the Prince Regent (later King George IV), during the last 10 years of his father, George III's reign, 1820. That era was a time when tea had become the beverage of choice in Georgian Britain. The table with HENRY LANE its long dropleaves and narrow top surface would fit inconspicuously in HULL a great parlor, until such time in the late afternoon, that is, when it could be brought out, extended and used for serving either high or low tea. The tone of the wood confirms that the finish is original. My father bought a very similar table from Krupsaw's Old Antique House in Washington in 1956 for $100, but today this one is worth $450. In an cosmopolitan market such as New York, the price in a shop could be even higher. The Sheraton vase-splat chair dates from the same period, but is American, probably having been made in Pennsylvania. The term "vase-splat" refers to the shape of the back panel, which resembles the outline of a vase. The condition of the caning is the determining factor in setting a value, as hand-caning is an expensive proposi- tion today. Many caners charge $2 per hole, thus a chair this size could cost $200 to re-cane. Given its overall good condition, this chair is worth $90. The great value in both of these pieces is their original- ity. As with most furniture, condition is the key element in appraising value.
