Inlaid Mahogany Card Table

Auction: American Furniture & Decorative Arts - 2855B Location: Boston Date / Time: October 25, 2015 10:00AM


Inlaid Mahogany Card Table, John and Thomas Seymour, Boston, Massachusetts, c. 1800, the shaped top with inlaid edge on a conformingly shaped skirt centering a wavy birch oval within a mitered panel, joining inlaid double-tapering, square legs, refinished, ht. 29, wd. 35 1/2, dp. 17 in.
Estimate $2,000-3,000

there is evidence of old butt hinges at the back of the top, which were possibly superfluous additions at one time. The hinges at the edges of the top appear undisturbed and original. There is a minor repair at the back right leg, with a small (1/4 x 1 in.) patch, a plugged hole, and a reattached or new glue block. There is very minor inlay and veneer repair.
