Card Table


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 752

The most sophisticated New York Chippendale-style card tables have serpentine sides, shaped corners, gadrooned skirts, and five cabriole legs ending in claw-and-ball feet. The square corners supported candlesticks, and the four oval dishes held gaming counters.
