Empire Table

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This table was gifted to the museum by descendants of Henry Sargent, the Boston artist who in 1824 was commissioned to paint a depiction of elite society in that city titled "The Tea Party" (now in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts). The painting shows an elegant double parlor decorated with items that appear to be French imports. In the middle of the room is a centre-table that closely resembles this one, although the top is wood rather than marble.

Provenance Possibly owned by Henry Sargent, Boston; Rosamond and Aimee Lamb, Boston [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1964, by gift.
