"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Table, rectangular; kingwood (amaranthe) veneer on mahogany and oak with ivory inlay. Rectangular top with slide on one long side; top has ivory inlay in form of irregular rings encircled by a band of ivory inlay. Band of ivory around outside top edge also. Smaller rectangular base on four smaller square blocks; top sides of base slope upward to broad solid vertical support. Base ringed with ivory dots, ivory stringing and small ovals on vertical support which joins top by means of two graduated blocks.
CONDITION: Good, except the small ivory knob on the slide is broken off. This was repaired in Paris just after purchase by the Museum, but it must have been broken off in transit. Felix Marcilhac said the knob was identical to those on the three drawers inside the chiffonier.
