The country's largest collection of fine Classical & Colonial Furniture... Just steps from the RISD Museum & John Brown House. A Mahogany Chippendale 6-leg Claw and Ball Drop Leaf Dining Table, New York, 1760-80.Six-legged dining tables are very desirable and relatively rare. They offer an obviously greater stability than the four-legged form and cost a good deal more.
The mahogany is beautifully figured. There are no repairs or alterations, and it has a fine, old polished surface. Interestingly, it seems that only New York made these extra-leg models.Other six-legged dining room tables are illustrated in Lockwood's Colonial Furniture , fig. 719, Levy's Gallery Catalog VI , p. This is a strong, beautifully sculpted table of good size with no joined boards and cabriole legs that are well-developed. It is one of the best of its kind. Also note the images with the top off, showing the clear indication of the originality of the top to the base, et al.
All offerings are in fine condition with no major repairs or replacements unless otherwise indicated in description. Item must be insured in full.
