Catalogue Note

This hutch table is a very rare survivor. To date only eight seventeenth-century joined oak chair tables are known.  Four of these survive from the Plymouth Colony area.  One is in the collection of the Henry Ford Museum, another at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a third in a private Connecticut collection.  All have replaced tops and only the hutch table at the Metropolitan Museum of Art retains its original feet (see Robert Blair St. George, The Wrought Covenant: Source Material for the Study of Craftsmen and Community in Southeastern New England, 1620-1700, (Brockton, MA: Brockton Art Center, 1979), p. 26, 30, no. 5, Frances Gruber Safford, American Furniture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vol I, (New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2007), pp. 54-7, no. 19 and Christie's, New York, Property from the Collection of Peggy N. and Roger G.
