This top-rank card table has leaves of solid Santo Domingo mahogany above an apron of decorative balls above a brass edge trim. The level of detail is extremely fine and is followed throughout the rest of this table’s construction. The central column is tightly carved with a punchwork background typical of the Salem School, all above saber legs with carved corner blocks and original rosettes, casters, etc. This table has had no alterations.
A related Boston table with similar applied carved balls is illustrated in the magazine Antiques (see scan).
