The form of this sideboard does not follow any published designs exactly, but the general shape has many English precedents. A variety of techniques were employed for decorative impact. Of them, the most striking is the veneering of the tambour doors with alternating strips of light and dark woods--a pattern associated with desks and sideboards from the Seymour shop.
