c1840 Empire Style Turtle Top Drop Leaf Table

Probably the thing I love most about Antique Furniture is discovering the history behind each piece.  The craftsmanship, wood quality and architectural designs – each tells a unique story.

A few weeks ago, I attended a  private sale and discovered hidden in a corner, an Empire style table with one drop leaf.  The wood was strikingly beautiful; Flame Mahogany.


This particular piece was very intriguing due to the way the Flame Mahogany design was aligned perfectly from the sides of the table to its continuation of the design on the separate pedestal and base.   The perfect marriage of design and rare distinctive patterns defined this piece as a very high quality table.

 This is now Available for Purchase at Vintage Barn Boutique in Chelsea.
