A rare and beautiful dining table is a part of a group of New York drop leaf tables that have eight legs. This form is one of the earlier Queen Anne pieces made in New York. The table has a large round top with drawers on either side of the table with original brass. The piece has beautiful cabriolet legs that terminates in an elegant slipper foot.
