Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
English or Scottish, c. 1755-1765.
The the well-figured solid mahogany rectangular double drop-leaf top of fantastic mellow colour, striking grain and patina, above the two short frieze drawers at either side, with period correct brass swan-neck handles, raised on four deep-chamfered square tapering legs, terminating in guttae feet, with original brass leather barrel castors.
The design derives from Thomas Chippendale's design for a 'Breakfast Table' in The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director, 1754, pl.XXXIII. Interestingly, a 'mahogany Breakfast Table with a draw' supplied to Dumfries House (Scotland) by Samuel Smith in 1756, displays the same distinctive chamfered leg. Similar examples also appear in Edinburgh journals.
Superb colour and patination, very rare in this particularly elegant form, without the stretchers.
For a comparable example see Chistie's catalogue, 23 October 2001, New York, Lot 37.
