Sack catalogue description: Classical mahogany octagonal-top card table with acanthus-carved lyre pedestal, outsplayed acanthus-carved legs ending in carved paw feet, top and frame are veneered with superbly figured flaming grain enhanced by a magnificent patina adding beauty to one of Phyfe's most successful designs; attributed to Duncan Phyfe. This table is apparently the mate to the Louis Guerineau Myers table in the Henry F. du Pont Winterthur Museum; this example features the grained maple background panel to the lyre that is apparently missing from the Winterthur example.
