This oval table with falling leaves is trim and light in weight and ideally suited to a variety of functions in an early eighteenth-century interior. The design of its legs and stretchers with opposed ogee balusters centered on a ring, exemplifies the standard turned vocabulary characteristic of William and Mary-style Boston and Boston-inspired tables of this form.
