This trestle-base table was a popular form for Hudson River Valley settlers. While surviving English examples are antecedents to this form, they are not apparently made in any other early American colony. The turning sequence on the support legs generally follow four templates; stacked balusters, such as found on this example, single baluster, opposing balusters, and baluster above a ball flanked by reels. The currently offered lot is most similar to a table that purportedly belonged to Abraham Ten Broeck (1734-1810) of Albany, New York. For additional information on related tables see Peter M.
