Chinese Chippendale Card Table
A rare, Chinese Chippendale style card, or gaming, table. Made out of mahogany, this table is very unusual. Chinese Chippendale was not a style often produced in the period, much less 100 years later. The fretwork all over the piece and the straight legs make it Chinese Chippendale. The finish is old and probably original. When the table is opened the embossed leather is revealed. While not original, this leather is beautiful and has a great look. If one looks closely, one can see that the table is completely finished on all 4 sides. The table opens with concertina action. This means both rear legs pull out and the sides that were folded up under the top slide out. It makes the table very stable and great for games. English. Circa 1875.
