American Renaissance Bronze-Mounted and Inlaid Rosewood Center Table, c. 1870, probably New York, marquetry top centered by a musical trophee, blocked frieze, fluted tapered legs, shaped stretcher, conforming feet, h. 29 1/2 in., w. 41 1/2 in., d. 26 in.
Note: The overall form and decoration of the center table offered here is closely related to American Renaissance tables made by influential New York firms such as Pottier & Stymus, Kilian Brothers, and Herter Brothers. In the ornamented Neo-Grec style, the table features extensive inlay and a distinctively shaped stretcher, similar to a Pottier & Stymus example held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a Kilian Brothers table sold in these salesrooms on January 30, 2010 as lot 318.
