Description

This form is particularly interesting because it shows a transition from card table form towared pier table design and is unique to this Neoclassical period.  This design configuration was used in other forms, i.e. the Lyre supports of a worktable illustrated in Duncan Phyfe and the English Regency, Nancy McLelland.

The highly figured mahogany top is crossbanded with rosewood, and is supported with an apron, the ends of which have contrasting panels.   Further, the use of brass star inlays is reminiscent of the French Restoration influence in New York and used by notable cabinetmakers such as  Lannuier, to see an illustration of this embellishment on a card table in the Metropolitain Museum.

Further, A related labeled table by Henry Kipp & Son, New York, and possibly from the same shop as ours, is illustrated in American Cabinetmakers, William Ketchum, Jr.
