19TH CENTURY ANTIQUE AMERICAN EMPIRE / CLASSICAL PERIOD MAHOGANY 3 DRAWER WORK TABLE / NIGHT STAND
We're delighted to offer for sale this wonderful 19th century antique mahogany 3 drawer work table. This table dates to the first half of the 19th century likely CA 1830 / 1840. This is a highly desirable Empire stand with wonderfully carved lion paw feet & a nicely formed center column. This table exhibits a number of design elements & proportions indicative of New York City furniture. We strongly feel this is a New York table but this classical design was also practiced in New England and other Eastern communities. The stand has two leaves supported by pull out shuttles inset in the case. The stand has an upper convex drawer above two cock bead molded crotched mahogany drawers with original locks & escutcheons. The stands measures 20 1/4" wide x 20" deep x 29" tall. When the two leaves are locked up the width goes from 20 1/4" wide to 44 1/4" wide.
