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.
