This table with ebonized woods is finely casted in bronze mounts sitting on a tri-pod base having all-over bronze mounts leading to a central tapering support. The white and gray veined marble top framed in a drape and tassel form bronze border. This piece is a fine example of the decorators workmanship.

James Archer Abbott serves as Director and Curator of Johns Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum & Library – one of two museums owned and operated by the university. Mr. Abbott’s publications include the following exhibition catalogs: Visions of Washington Irving: Selections from the Collections of Historic Hudson Valley (co-author, 1991); classical to 19th-century America: The influence of Berry Tracy on the Historical Interior (1994); and A Frenchman in Camelot: The Decoration of the Kennedy White House by Stéphane Boudin (1995).

In 2006, he completed a well-received history of the international design firm Jansen (1880-1989), entitled “JANSEN,” and published by Acanthus Press, LLC. This was followed by a companion volume, “Jansen Furniture,” published in spring 2007.
