This pier table, one of a matching pair, is an excellent example of the New York Empire style and is often attributed to Duncan Phyfe due to similarities in ornamentation and form. The table is characteristic of the New York variant of American Empire style epitomized by architectural and Neoclassical elements—columns, pilasters, acanthus leaf motifs, and other elements inspired by Antiquity.
