A Hepplewhite Federal Mahogany and Tiger Maple Card Table with Central Oval and Panels, Massachusetts., c. 1790, Provenance, Capt Pearce Estate, Providence, Rhode Island

This table was acquired in 1994 at Northeast Auctions when they auctioned off the estate of Capt. Pearce of Providence, RI. This was a legitimate family piece and in original first surface. Much of the grunge hides the tiger maple apron. The card table is probably Massachusetts, however, this piece descended in Pearce's family. I was attracted to it because of its local Provenance, first surface, and condition.

Height: 27 in.  Width: 36 in. Depth: 17 in. - 34 1/4 in.
