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.
