A Carved Classical Mahogany Card Table with Dolphins and Brass Inlay,
probably New York, c.1830
This is a superb classical table with a strong, deeply carved column supported by dolphins that span the width of the table graciously. These elements retain their original surface. The figured mahogany tabletop and apron were cleaned, revealing the beautiful figure throughout, and the contrasting edge banding on the top. The brass stringing at the base indicates a New York origin, as that decorative element was popular in New York, in contrast to other cities, where it is almost never found. (The exception to this rule is the usage of brass stringing on some Seymour pieces, which this clearly is not; this is not a style he worked with.)
We also have an exceptional drop leaf table with dolphin feet in our collection. Please click here for an image of this piece.
