PRESENTING A STUNNING Early 19C American Cherry Extendable Dining Table.
From circa 1800-20 and made of solid cherrywood.
The table has 7 removeable leaves and can be used as a side or center table as well as a dining table.
BEAUTIFUL natural 200 year old patina.
American made in the Federal style.
Four carved, fluted and turned legs on castors and a central support leg on castor. All original castors.
The construction of this table reveals it’s age. The extending planks are all fitted with wooden pegs. One plank has the following numbering: “1718 & 10)”. The central metal bolt has all the signs of age that one would expect.
NOTE: You can ignore the furniture pad under the central leg support … it is simply that our warehouse floor is extremely uneven!
Federal furniture refers to American furniture produced in the Federal Period, which lasted from approximately 1789 to 1823. Notable furniture makers who worked in the federal style included Duncan Phyfe and Charles-Honoré Lannuier. It was influenced by the Georgian and Adam styles, and was superseded by the American Empire style.
Pieces in this style are characterized by their sharply geometric forms, legs that are usually straight rather than curved, contrasting veneers, and geometric inlay patterns on otherwise flat surfaces. Pictorial motifs, when extant, usually reference the new federal government with symbols such as the eagle.
The Oval Office grandfather clock, made by between 1795–1805 in Boston by John and Thomas Seymour, is a noted example of the federal style of furniture.
BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT and QUALITY PIECE!
Early 19C American Cherry Extendable Dining Table.
Provenance: From a Private Dallas Collection.
Condition: Good original condition. One of the leaves was split and has been re-glued, but does not detract from the piece. One of the leaves has a corner, missing a piece of wood (see photos) but it is clearly historic damage and therefore we would not recommend repairing it.
Dimensions: Fully extended the Table is 107″ Long, 44″ Wide and 28.6″ Tall.
With 4 leaves removed it is 52.75″ Long, 44″ Wide and 28.6″ Tall.
