Newport Pedestal Table
mahogany, 30" diameter, 27" h

A very rare form in Newport furniture: a tip-tip pedestal table with fluted urn-turned column, knee carving, and open talon ball and claw feet. There are only a few original examples of tables similar to this because Newport makers developed rectangular tables to a very high level of refinement. This table has a top that is dished from the solid and knee carvings in the style of the Goddard family shop. The feet are overcut, opening a space between the top of the ball and each digit, and the front talon of each foot is open.
