A Fine Mahogany 6-Leg Queen Anne Breakfast/Dining Table, with Drawer, on Raised Slipper Feet, Rhode Island, c.1750

The wood on this table is superb.   The leaves are heavy to the weight, which are composed of beautifully figured Cuban mahogany.   Few of these dining tables have a drawer, and this has one that’s all original.   The legs, we feel, are Rhode Island in form, as there is no curve to them, but rather a straight down, almost tapered run into the slipper foot, which is also stylistically indicative of Rhode Island work.  The height of this table is 29 inches, which is a very comfortable eating height.  The table retains its original hinges and almost all of its glue blocks, which are often lost over time.   This is a very serviceable table, in perfect condition with a beautiful top that has aged beautifully through the years.

Height: 29 1/4 in.   Depth: 52 1/2 in.  Length: 18 in. - 54 in.
