According to Christie's, New York, where this table was sold in October 2004, the table was most recently in the collection of Nelson Grimaldi Seabra of Argentina. Almost certainly one of a pair, the probable mate to this table is in the collection of the Mills Mansion in Staatsburg, New York. That table was acquired with a history of descent in the Livingston, Lewis, and Hoyt families of New York.
