Please note that one table is illustrated in Duncan Phyfe and the English Regency, by Nancy McClelland, plate 277 p. 290.
These tables were part of a suite of furniture made for Thomas Cornell Pearsall's home "Belmont," located at East River and 57th Street. The contoured double elliptical top and reeded legs fit with the New York aesthetic of the time. The banded central tablet, reeded legs and inverted baluster feet are exemplary of Phyfe's best work.
