    The images above are that of a very fine mahogany candle tilt- top table.
    I located this item at a secondhand store in the South Bronx of New York City.
    The table is small in size, with a oval table top set on a bublous turn shaft raised, raised on delicate arched spider legs.
    Circa about 1820 the table is in excellent condition for its age.
    The underside of the table has a paper that is not ledge able and
    the words patent pendinget.
    It appears to be a one of a kind saleman sample that would have been a prototype for the original that would have been purchased.
    As always, I welcome any any all information provided in association with this item.

    Thank you very much for taking a look see.

      Looks to be 20th century.

      Is the "patent pending" on the brass latching device? A close up of it may help in finding it in a patent search-- that would give you a no earlier date.

      The patent pending is on the wood portion of the table, not the latch.

      Thank you much

      It is very much 20th century up to 1960 or so.
