This table is exceptional for its condition, diminutive size and turnings.  Trestle-base tuck-away tables are a well recognized New York form. Typically, they have flat gates rather than turned gates supporting the leaves.  The support leg turnings on the currently offered example are without equal within the group. Rather than the prevalent stacked baluster turnings, the turner here chose to use a cup-and-cone turning quite reminiscent of the leg turnings found on contemporary high chests or dressing tables. Also of note is the trestle base on this example as it is composed of two boards rather than the typical one and may indicate a development in design, as gumwood warps excessively and the the trestle being composed of two boards may mitigate the warping effect. For additional information on New York gateleg tables see Peter M. Kenny, “Flat Gates, Draw Bars, Twists, and Urns: New York’s Distinctive, Early Baroque Oval Tables with Falling Leaves,” American Furniture 1994, ed. Luke Beckerdite, (Milwaukee, WI: Chipstone Foundation, 1994), p. 106-35.
