A Magnificent Classical Quilted/Tiger Maple Lyre Card Table, Probably Philadelphia, c.1830
We have never had a table with an outstanding presence such as this, showing the most beautiful figured maple. The top board, as well as the one below it is solid, and made of a very rare “quilted” maple. Note the zig-zagging of the figure. Again, we have never had an example with such vibrant figure throughout! The apron is tiger maple, as is the rest of the piece, which uses a thick veneer. The quality of construction is exceptional, and although it has a more country (or provincial) look due to the use of tiger maple (not mahogany, which is traditional), it is constructed in the best of the city style. We believe Philadelphia or its environs are where it was produced, because of the shaping of the legs that we have seen on other examples. The platform upon which the lyre sits is convex, creating a lightness of form. It’s a showstopper in every regard, and the best of the best of the Classical card table form. Height: 29 in. Width: 36 in. Depth: 17 1/2 in.
