Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History



  • Center table, 1870–75
    Attributed to Pottier and Stymus and Company (New York City, active 1859–1910)
    Rosewood, walnut, marble; 31 1/4 x 47 x 31 in. (79.4 x 119.4 x 78.7 cm)
    Purchase, Anonymous Gift, 1968 (68.207a,b)

    Stylistic and manufacturing similarities between this table and three other chairs in the Museum’s collection likely made by Pottier & Stymus warrant its attribution to that large and important New York City firm. As were the establishments of Leon Marcotte and the Herter Brothers, Pottier & Stymus was truly an interior decorating concern, capable of providing everything required, including the architecture, for the complete furnishing of a house.
