Card table


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 724

Card tables are more typically associated with parlors and sitting rooms, but these lightweight and versatile objects lent themselves to a variety of activities, from taking tea to conducting correspondence. This card table and its mate, now in a private collection, were produced en suite with a Pembroke table that would have been used for informal meals not requiring a large dining table.
