Traditionally, this form is identified with New York City and particularly the Joseph Meeks family of cabinetmakers. The large rectangular top is book-matched in wide flitches of crotch mahogany. The drop leaves with rounded corners are similarly veneered and are supported in an upright position by veneered supports. The apron is also veneered in crotch mahogany and has two drawers on one side. The upper part of the table is supported by four large veneered scrolls topped with volutes. A flattened stretcher connects the scrolled uprights and the feet are composed of paired scrolls raised on brass casters.
