Carved Mahogany Classical Drop-Leaf Table, Phyfe School, New York



This is a magnificent fully embellished drop-leaf table, which represents the highest development of the Empire classical form in New York, of the 1820s-1830s. A related table to this is illustrated in Barquist's American tables and looking glasses, which he refers to as a masterpiece of classical form. While the table he illustrates has carved panels flanking the upper drawer, our example had carved lions' faces on the fully developed plinth, as a trade-off. No two of these are alike. Please explore the various close-ups we illustrate. The carved columns, pineapple, acanthus leaves and fully developed hairy paw feet speak for themselves, as the work of a gifted artisan. The top is single board Santo Domingo mahogany with beautiful deep figuring, and exhibits the more complex double cloved corner. The mahogany has a warm, amber glow. This table is one of the best. Measures: Height 30 1/4 in, width 25 1/2 - 50 1/2 in, depth 36 in.
