A Fine and Rare William and Mary Turned and Joined Gateleg Trestle-Base Table
New York, Circa 1690-1730
A popular form favored by Hudson River Valley settlers
Gumwood and yellow poplar

Antique William and MaryTrestle-table,-NY_view-2

This example closely related to a table that purportedly belonged to Abraham Ten Broeck (1734-1810) of Albany, New York.

The turning sequence on the support legs display Baroque vigor…the legs on these tables generally follow a vocabulary of four templates; stacked balusters, such as found on this example, single baluster, opposing balusters, and baluster above a ball flanked by reels.

For additional information on related tables see Peter M. Kenny, "Flat Gates, Draw Bars, Twists, and Urns: New York's Distinctive, Early Baroque Oval Tables with Falling Leaves", American Furniture 1994, edited by Luke Beckerdite, (Milwaukee, WI: Chipstone Foundation, 1994), pages 106-35. Also, Frances Gruber Safford, American Furniture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art: Early Colonial Period: the Seventeenth-Century and William and Mary Styles, (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2007), pages 159-61, number 65. The author states that there are perhaps only two dozen of these tables known to be extant.
(Excellent original condition; as is typically the case, the hinges were changed during the tables working life.)
