Large Pennsylvania William & Mary period walnut gate-leg table in an older surface, oval top with elongated drop leaves, with a dovetailed drawer at each end and scalloped skirts over ring and baluster legs and stretchers. Oak, poplar, and white pine secondary. Older brasses and iron hinges. Note: table retains an old paper label inventory description on the inside edge of the skirt below the drawer (F88). 29 1/2" H x 64 3/4" W (w/leaves, 19 3/4" center section/ 22 1/2 each leaf) x 49 3/4" D. Early 18th century. Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT, purchased from Israel Sack Inc. Oct. 25, 1939. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis assembled what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: Minor loss to top edge at rule joint for one leaf, center of top with varnish loss of a circular pattern, underside bracing and divider of drawers 19th century or later. Iron hinges on one side show evidence of previous triangular strap hinges. One dovetailed drawer retains most of the glue blocks to underside of drawer.
