Perhaps unique in design, this is one of two known work tables of this type. The best features of New York Classical style are seen in its shape and decoration. The workings of its interior are equally elaborate. The lid, hinged from the front, springs up upon release of a hidden catch to reveal a plain panel with a mirror on the reverse.
