The country's largest collection of fine Classical & Colonial Furniture... Just steps from the RISD Museum & John Brown House.
A Fine Classical Mahogany Card/Games Table with Crossed Lyres attributed to Joseph B. This card table is an exceptional example of American Classical design, with highly skilled carving and reminiscent of work being done in New York during the late Phyfe period and the work done in New York by the Vose makers, etc. Note the quality of the lyre and the carved leafage at the base of each lyre. The lyre sits on a double pedestal that is concave on all sides, reducing the heft of what could have otherwise been a over-weighty table.
All of this is supported on four individually carved legs with conforming paw foot casters. These legs are quite distinctive and the reason for the Barry attribution. Please note, we have, in our collection, a related drop leaf table that came together with this piece; it appears they are from the same shop and have always been together. All offerings are in fine condition with no major repairs or replacements unless otherwise indicated in description.
