American Federal Triple Pedestal 'Concertina' Banquet Table


A very rare and highly desirable extending triple 'trestle' pedestal dining table made during the concurrent American Federal and English Regency periods. Each of the three trestle-form pedestals is attached to a wooden 'concertina' (accordion-action extension mechanism) invented in 1800 by Robert Gillow of London, England. Solid hand planed and carved of the finest mahogany; with reeded top edges, frieze edge mouldings, and sabre legs ending in brass box casters. All boards appear to be of the same growth, including the original aprons. Fully extended: 11’ 7” L x 49” W x 28.5” H, seating 12 or 14; depending upon chair dimensions. Fully reduced and closed, with drop leaves down: Top measures 27.5” x 49”. With drop leaves up: 48” x 49”. Four aproned insertion leaves: two measure 22” x 49” and two measure 23.25” x 49”. Images #3 through #7 show the table's full range of versatility. Removal of each leaf reduces seating capacity by two. These exceedingly rare American-made tables with Gillow's patent components have been attributed to leading makers of the period in New York, Philadelphia, and Boston. This table would appear to be of Middle Atlantic states origin: New York City or possibly Philadelphia.
