Federal

Federal furniture comes from the American "Federal" period which lasted from roughly 1780-1830. This furniture is influenced by Georgian and Adam styles, and are characterized by sharp geometric forms, straight legs, contrasting veneers, and inlay patterns. These pieces were most commonly made with mahogany; however, cherry, pine, and maple were also used. The most common ornament on this period of furniture was the eagle.

Banjo clock

Banjo clock

A wooden wall clock mimicking the shape of a banjo normally void of a striking mechanism, weight-driven, and meant to run eight days without winding. The banjo clock was a distinctively American style that broke off from European traditions in clockmaking. Most banjo clocks have a round dial, a long throat with brass curved ornaments, and a rectangular pendulum box with a hinged door. Often the clocks also have a metal finial in the shape of an eagle. Both the throat and door are frequently outfitted with reverse-painted (verre églomisé) glass panels painted with battle scenes, landscapes, eagles, flags, and other symbols of patriotism.

Finial

Finial

An ornamental, terminating piece that extends vertically from the apex of a design. In architecture, they are found at the tips of gables or spires, and in furniture, as top ornaments on cabinet corners, posts, or supports. Finial also refers to the decorative metal piece used to affix lampshades to table and floor lamps. They often take the shape of a ball, flame, flower, acorn, pineapple, or vase.
