Circa 1820-1840 this is a fine fine example of State of Maine painted furniture 

Maine sign painters would faux paint inexpensive poplar furniture to look like amazing exotic woods

during the harsh winters when they couldn’t paint outside 

there is a wonderful artical about this in the May 2000 issue of Antiques Magazine 

i have additional photos if needed
