A Mahogany Classical Card Table on "Cannon Ball" Base, Boston/Salem, c.1820
From a design point, this is an exceptional card table with rarely seen columnar base. The design statement is striking with a "cannon ball" shaped base below a tapered column that terminates in a series of rings. The saber legs are typical Boston/Salem form, all of which support a top with solid mahogany leaves which are beautifully edged and the apron, a very deep, convex shape.
We've had only one other table of this type over the past 25 years, and have seen only two more in addition to that. This one is the finest, and the only one we've seen with inlaid brass on the apron. The condition throughout is immaculate.
Height: 29 1/2 in. Width: 35 in. Depth: 17 1/4 in.
