Card table

Start collecting

New York card tables often had an additional fifth leg that swung out to support the second leaf when the table was open. With its bold, gadrooned (lobed) molding in the characteristic New York manner, this table retains its original playing surface of baize (a type of silk).


Said to have belonged to Jacobus van Natta in Morristown, New Jersey, and to have descended in his family; purchased by the Museum in 1960.
