Label:
This card table was intended for the less formal of John and Elizabeth Cadwalader’s parlors. Compared to the more elaborate furnishings created for the Cadwalader home, this piece conforms to the typical Philadelphia style. Nevertheless, it is distinguished as extraordinary by the hairy paw feet, a feature not commonly found on Philadelphia furniture.
