I have communicated with Peter Kenny, of the Metropoliatain museum, (Curator of American 19th century furniture) and construction details point to the Phyfe workshop. Generally, later examples are of rosewood, however, this table uses beautifully figured mahogany, and the brass inlay is in original undisturbed condition.

This came from a New York State picker, about 1990-1991.
