Diminutive Queen Anne Maple Drop-Leaf Table with Rounded Leaves New England, probably Connecticut, 1740-1780 H. 27 in.; L. 28 ¾ in.; W. (closed) 11 1/8 in.; D. (open) 27 3/8 in. This delicate table retains much of its original reddish wash --applied to the maple to make it appear as mahogany. This was often done- in both urban and rural areas- so that a native wood would appear as much more expensive imported mahogany.
From Chicago's Caste Design, the Bridger Oval Occasional Table. Just beautiful, sleek and elegant, with an alien organic feel to the base. It has a Mid-Century Modern sensibility but is so very contemporary.
