American Late Classical Mahogany Dining Table

mid-19th century, possibly by Joseph Meeks & Sons, New York, the circular top opening to accommodate five leaves of various widths, supported by a shaped octagonal pedestal on a base with Gothic trefoil feet, the top with a pair of drop legs at each end for stability when extended.
h. 30", dia. 49", ext. l. 114"

Estimate $1,000-1,500

**In good refinished and restored condition. The table is sturdy, stable and the runners functional. The top appears to have a newer polish than the older one on the rest of the table. It, together with the old leaves are in good condition. The leaves fit well; their grain is not as highly figured as the top proper. The table exhibits normal wear, shrinkage and indications of age and use, including some veneer losses to the perimeter edges of the legs and bottom edge of the pedestal, and some past veneer repairs.

Sold for $1,063
