A Rare Classical/Gothic Figured Mahogany Marble Top Mixing/Center Table, New York, c.1845

Scroll down for 8 more photos

This table is a rare form: firstly, it is finished on all four sides so that it can function away from a wall; secondly, the marble top makes this more than a common worktable.  Mixing tables are an early Colonial form having roughly the same dimensions as this piece, and always a marble top.  This table serves that same function and can accommodate glasses, bottles, et al in luxuriant style.  It serves like a marble topped tea table.  The interior of the drawers are of satinwood, with the top drawer compartmentalized.  The corners are canted and paneled with flame mahogany, and the drawerfronts are all matched.  The clustered columns which support this casepiece are beautifully executed, as are the plinth and legs which we understand are after a design attributed to Alexander Jackson Davis, 1803-1892.

This table retains an older, replaced marble top and all else in original, fine condition.

Height: 29 3/4 in.  Width: 26 3/4 in.  Depth: 21 in.
