Dressing table


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774

The legs and feet of this table have a distinctive pattern found only in Philadelphia furniture in the William and Mary style. Notably they closely match those on a high chest and dressing table at the Philadelphia Museum of Art that Caspar Wistar ordered in 1726 from Philadelphia cabinetmaker John Head (d. 1754).
