American Classical Carved Mahogany and Rosewood Games Table, c. 1815, attr. to James Woodward (1769-1839), Norfolk, VA, foldover top with canted corners, conforming frieze, foliate and disc-turned supports, incurvate plinth, hairy legs and paw feet, casters, h. 31 in., w. 35 1/2 in., d. 17 3/4 in Note: Originally one of a pair of games tables attributed to James Woodward, the mate to the offered table is depicted on the cover of Newbern and Melchor’s Norfolk Classical Furniture. The rounded edges of the top, the solid core of wood used to construct the base, and the plinth panels on the skirt are related to two other games tables also attributed to Woodward, each having a Norfolk-area provenance. The handling of the legs, incurvate plinth, and hairy paw feet are directly related to the French Classical taste in America introduced by Charles-Honoré Lannuier and Duncan Phyfe. Ref: Newbern, Thomas. Classical Norfolk Furniture 1810-1840. 2004, pp. 24-25, figs. 3-29.
