Federal Card Table

Federal Card Table

Federal-style demilune card table, made of solid mahogany and crotch-mahogany and figured maple veneer. This 18th century reproduction table features extensive handmade holly inlay decorations of bellflowers, cross-banding, and figured maple patterae that provide an amazing color contrast to the beautiful mahogany background. While the table is designed to be placed against a wall, the top does flip over and is supported by the rear legs, which swing out on a gate.

36" long x 18" wide x 28" tall $2,800
