Massachusetts Chippendale 18th Century Mahogany Drop Leaf Dining Table

United States Ca. 1770

Great example of a coastal Massachusetts mahogany drop leaf table with very graceful legs ending in ball and claw feet. This example was probably made in the Salem area. Superior quality matched top with strong swirled figure. The depth with the leaves down is 18″. It retains a pleasing early finish that is lightly crazed
