Provenance

Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Varick Stout, New York

Catalogue Note

Four legged tea tables from New York are extremely scarce.  The attribute associating this table to New York is the form of its pointed "slipper" foot.  A related example is in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago (acc. no. 1981.290) and another is in American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, Vol. 2. (Washington, DC: Highland House, 1969), p. 307, no. 753.  Other objects with identical feet are illustrated in Dean Failey, Long Island is My Nation, (Cold Spring Harbor, New York: Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities, 1998), pp. 118-21, nos. 138-40, Joseph Downs, American Furniture: Queen Anne and Chippendale Periods, (New York: Macmillan Company, 1952), no. 108 and 318 and David Barquist, American Tables and Looking Glasses in the Mabel Brady Garvan and Other Collections at Yale University, (New Haven, CT: Yalue University Art Gallery, 1992), pp. 90-1, no.18.
