Duncan Phyfe, a cabinetmaker based in New York during the early 19th century generated a distinctive style that can truly be called American. Some of the characteristics of Phyfe's work include pedestal table supports with three or four curved, or sabre, legs, claw feet and cloverleaf-shaped tabletops. The legs were frequently ornamented with reeding or repetitive floral carvings, and multiple beading was a common edge treatment for table and cabinet-top edges. Broad surfaces such as tabletops and drawer fronts were generally veneered with mahogany, and the pieces were stained dark.
