A Classical Pier Table

New York
Circa 1830

This handsome New York pier table is reminiscent of what is referred to as the Grecian Plain Style in the late Classical period. Of very high quality, this piece exhibits exquisite cabinet work and comes down nearly two hundred years later in impeccable condition. The original Carrara marble top conforms to the shape of the apron. The apron with its bold ogee profile is recessed across the front. The original mirror stands between wide pilasters veneered in crotch mahogany. Large tapering scrolls support the top. A boldly shaped plinth is reflected in the mirror. Feet with tapering ogee sides provide support for the table and repeat the shape of the apron. The feet are raised on small square ebony-painted pads.
