An American Federal Mahogany Dining Table SOLD
A rare American Federal Three Part Mahogany Dining Table, probably Philadelphia, circa 1800,comprised of dense and solid "Island" figured top, veneered skirt, three pedestals with saber legs ending in the original brass casters. Although this form was produced in significant numbers in Great Britain, it is a relatively rare form of American furniture. The secondary woods, by microanalysis, are ash and white pine, which clearly indicates the Continent of origin. The table was most likely made in the Philadelphia area, as it has a history of ownership in a family of prominence in that city, however, it may have also been made in the New York vicinity, or even possibly Charleston. CONDITION: The table retains all its original lock, hinges, and the majority of the original late eighteenth century hand-wrought screws. The finish is very early, possibly original, and has been conserved with several coats of shellac to the top and an application of microcrystalline wax. DIMENSIONS: Height 27 1/2", Length 102", Width 44 1/2"
