A Rare Large Pedestal Mahogany Classical Banquet Table, Boston, c.1820


Scroll down for 7 more photos

Banquet tables are far rarer than dining room tables, as there are more parts that get lost over time, and generally fewer were ever made. This is a superb example with magnificent Cuban mahogany leaves, which are all of the solid.

The design of this table is very desirable, because it is economy perfected; note the closed position when the three solid leaves are removed. And, to make it even smaller, the ends of this table are hinged, reducing this banquet table to a width of 30 inches, which is amazing, considering the full length of the banquet table with all three leaves and the ends extended, amounts to 11feet, 2 inches.

This table is the best of the best.

Height: 28 in. Width: 54 in.
Length: 30 in. - 134 in. (11 feet, 2 inches) including three 26 in. leaves.
