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.

Scott, 1939), pl. 120. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols. (Washington, D.C.: Highland House Publishers, 1957–1990), vol. 4, p. 1040, pl. P3830.
