Overview

A very beautiful American rococo-revival sofa table in rosewood with shaped drop-leaves, escargot feet, and well-articulated foliate carvings on apron and cabriole legs. Attributable to well-known New York cabinetmaker, Joseph Meeks & Sons. This is a very unusual form for an American table inspired by the French rococo style, with its seemingly hinged "S" carved cabriole legs. New York City, circa 1840. Table is three-dimensional, finished the same on both sides with a drawer on one side. Table once had casters. If casters were placed back on table it would be 30" high
Makes a lovely writing table or end table!
Measures: 36 1/2" wide x 27" deep x 28 1/2" high
open length 60"
