(H: 27.25"; top (leaves down): 44.5 by 17"; top (leaves up): 50 by 44.5")
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 vigorâ€¦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.
