A Figured Mahogany Classical Center Table, Baltimore,
Franklin Roosevelt family
This center table is a
beautiful example of Baltimore work with a magnificently
figured top. The base retains all its original stenciling
and surface. The carved feet are exuberant and the
casters fully developed, and of the exuberant type
often seen with Baltimore high style pieces.
An image of this table being used in
Franklin Roosevelt's Hyde Park estate. This was obviously
a family piece, as seen in the photo below. In the
back is an 1830 Classical sofa.
