Catalogue Note

The legs on this extraordinary table relate directly with those found on contemporaneous New York gaming tables ascribed to the Type II or "Beekman" type.  The acanthus carving on the knees is a very rare motif in New York but may be found on  two other surviving New York tables.  The first is a games table sold at Sotheby's, New York, Important Americana, January 22, 2011, sale 8710, lot 312.  The second is another dining table now in the collection of the Henry Ford Museum, Dearborn, MI and is illustrated in American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, vol. 1, (Washington, DC: Highland House Publishers Inc., 1969), p. 145, no. 394.
