A Classical Games Table

Boston, Massachusetts
Circa 1820
Attributed to Isaac Vose & Son with carving by Thomas Wightman

There are presently about four other tables virtually identical to this table. One of them is stenciled with the label of Isaac Vose & Son. Another one is in the Faith B. and Charles L. Bybee Collection at the Dallas Museum of Art. It is included in the book, American Furniture in the Bybee Collection, on pages 120 and 121. Veneered in beautifully figured crotch mahogany with applied rounded moldings, the boards on top of this table are an indication of the quality found throughout the entire piece. The apron rail is adorned with book matched veneers and terminates with scrolled ends. The tapering pillar has a carved collar featuring foliate carving attributed to Thomas Wightman and the plinth has matched veneers and incurvate sides. The feet are carved in a fashion associated with the work of Isaac Vose.
