This table features the uniquely American birdcage mechanism which joins the piecrust top to the shaft and allows the tabletop to either rotate freely, or be tilted up for easy and attractive storage against the wall. The legs represent the perfect S-curve of the times. Between 1985 and 1989, two closely related objects sold at Christie’s for prices in excess of $1,045,000 and again in 1995 for $1.6 million. Kindel’s reproduction is faithful to the original and requires 23 hours of hand carving to achieve the high level of ornamentation.
