Card Table, Games Table, Attributed to Lemuel Bishop, Charlotte, Vermont
Date/Period: Circa 1810 - SOLD


Card Table, Games Table, Attributed to Lemuel Bishop, Charlotte, Vermont

Measurement: Height: 28"; top closed: 34.5" x 15.5"; top open: 34.5" x 31"

Material: Cherry, poplar, white pine, mahogany banding, mixed woods inlays

Condition: Very good, trivial restorations. Scattered and minor inlay restorations to
ankle cuff and small section of apron; outside drawer guides replaced. Each drawer
bottom received a quarter inch strip of wood at the rear compensating wood shrinkage.
The wooden pin/pegs joining mortise and tenon joint [fly rail to leg] were replaced
suggesting that the tenon was restored. The swing leg displays a maker’s mistake;
initially a mortice was cut on wrong side [back face that rests against frame] then
filled. The color match of fillet is perfect. The fill piece perfectly matches leg…fill is
original to leg. The end grain terminus color [of fill] is new [fresh] whereas it was very
recently reduced-in-height as it was standing a tad proud and would have
damaged the top.

Much of the original color remains and is visible under newer surface.
Additional images available by request.

Additional Information: A rare and scarcely encountered form, one of the finest
Vermont games tables extant. Fold over rectangular top with double-string-inlay edges
slightly projects over plain apron having two short drawers; apron joins double-tapered
legs featuring icicle and string inlays. The drawers with applied cockbeaded molding,
the apron and tops of legs all are inlaid.

Literature: For a card table of similar form, see Kenneth Joel Zogry, The Best the
Country Affords - Vermont Furniture 1765-1850, p. 40, cat. 13. To view closely related
icicle inlay by the same maker see p. 80, cat. 26 of Rich and Tasty – Vermont Furniture
to 1850 by Jean Burks and Philip Zea.
