Impressive “great tables” such as the one pictured were rare in the early 18th Century New England. More common were the much smaller Queen Anne gateleg tables. The lack of large banquet-size tables was most likely due to the small size of the mid-18th Century dining rooms. Later, in the Federal period, when impressive mansions became more common, large banquet tables also became more prevalent. Our table is patterned after a table which is attributed to Connecticut. It is available without leaves, or with two leaves, and can be special ordered with a third pedastal section. Contact us about customization options.
