Celeste and Edward Koster Antiques, Chatham, New York; Marguerite Riordan, Stonington, Connecticut; Gary C. Cole, American Decorative Arts, New York.
Retaining remnants of gray paint on its base, this handsome hutch table is very rare for having been made with and retaining its wheels, which allowed for it to be easily movable or fixed in place with the insertion a small pin. With its generous overhanging top, thick tapering legs, heavy stretchers, and mortise and tenon joinery, this massive table has been constructed to withstand decades and decades of daily use.
In overall fine condition. Wear and discoloration commensurate with age and use. Some loss and craquelure to the painted surface.
