A specimen Boston needlework table with its rare original wooden 'work in progress' canister. The leg turnings and foliate carvings are comparable to those of the Vose shop. This table has a reed edged drop leaf top. When its leaves are raised, the work surface is increased from 19" to 37.5" in length. Compatible and well sized with our Japanned painted Baltimore Needlework Table; as a composed 'collectors pair' of bedside tables or sofa-end tables.
