Displaying four scrolled supports with lion's-heads, this breakfast table is an arresting survival of New York Classical furniture. Virtually identically carved supports adorn a card table in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and both tables were probably made in the same shop. With their heads turned to one side, eyes downcast with a hint of a furrowed brow, "pricked" stubble and lively hair carving, the lion's heads and their scrolled bases are distinctive and illustrate the hand of a single carver. Both tables also feature similar bases and die-stamped brass lyre ornament of the same pattern. See Peter M. Kenny, Honoré Lannuier: Cabinetmaker from Paris (New York, 1998), p. 164, fig. 93.
