New York mahogany and mahogany veneer 3-pedestal banquet dining table, white pine, poplar and ash secondary woods. The top is constructed of figured mahogany leaves and includes two (2) D-shaped ends having a single pivoting leaf and one (1) center section with two leaves. The tops surmount conforming skirts with figured mahogany veneers and applied half-round brass molding to the edge. Each section rests on three vasiform-shaped and carved pedestals that are supported by four (4) carved legs that terminate into paw feet with brass casters. The leaf supports consist of square rods that are recessed underneath the table when not in use and then slide out when necessary. 181" (15'1") total L x 54 1/8" W x 29 1/4" H (24" floor to shirt). Each D-end section measures: 50" L. Center section measures: 81" L. Circa 1825. Note: This table was originally purchased from George C. Williams American Antiques in Charleston, SC and purportedly descended through a nine-generation Charleston, SC family. Maurie McInnis and Robert Leath note in their article "Beautiful Specimens, Elegant Patterns: New York Furniture for the Charleston Market, 1810-1840" (American Furniture, 1996, Chipstone Foundation) that it was common in the first half of the 19th century for wealthy Charleston families to import furniture from New York. It was less expensive and was deemed to be more fashionable.
CONDITION: Minor repairs to one leaf; central section top with wood shrinkage; various missing foot laminations recarved, applied, and finished to match; the leaves of the two ends have been toned to match the central section, which was exposed to less sunlight.
