Classical Breakfast Table

This breakfast table is a great example of fine New York cabinetmaking. Beautiful mahogany veneers cover the top of the table and aprons. The edge of both aprons is accented with a double line of brass inlay in rosewood. The acanthus carved pedestal is supported by saber shaped legs ending in animal paw feet with gilt lacquered casters.
