Card Table, 1765-1790

The Henry Ford

This is a rare survival of a Charleston high style, colonial-era card table. Wealthy southerners tended to purchase expensive furniture from London, rather than from local craftsmen. This piece is executed in the Chinese Chippendale taste - the decorative carvings are derived from an illustration for a "China Case" in Thomas Chippendale's famous pattern book.
