Sack catalogue description: Classical mahogany dropleaf library table, clover leaf shaped leaves with finely figured grain, drawer in one end; pedestal has an acanthus-carved urn and four outsplayed legs with acanthus carved and reeded façades ending in brass castered feet, mellow patina. The crispness of the carving and the careful selection of choice mahogany indicates the hand of Duncan Phyfe or a contemporary of equal rank. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols. (Washington, D.C.: Highland House Publishers, 1957–1990), vol. 8, p. 2244, pl. P5751.
