Description American late Classical or late Empire sideboard has a rectangular marble top over two ogee molded drawer fronts, S-scroll stiles, two paneled cupboard doors separated by a recessed arched panel, C-scroll front feet, and square tapering back feet. The door panels have been surfaced with crotch figure mahogany veneer, and its divided interior includes two shelves and a four bottle liquor rack. This furniture style is sometimes also labeled Pillar and Scroll. It reportedly was first owned by Kentucky's 11th governor, J. T. Morehead, and later by John B. Dryden, editor of the "Frankfort Call and Roundabout."
