Classical Brass Inlaid and Stencil Decorated Figured Mahogany and Rosewood Tilt-Top Tea Table, Philadelphia or Baltimore, Circa 1825

Provenance

Estate of Mr. Flannigan, Elmira, New York;
Carswell Rush Berlin, Inc., New York.

Catalogue Note

The base of the pedestal relates to the bowl or urn shape standard on a paint decorated pier table and card table of Baltimore origin pictured in Gregory R. Weidman, Classical Maryland 1815-1845, (Maryland Historical Society, Baltimore, 1993) pages 94 and 95. Brass string inlay is not characteristic of Baltimore but relates, particularly in its width, to many examples of high style Philadelphia furniture. Similarly, the double cross banding of the top is a distinctive feature of several Philadelphia tables.
