Mahogany Carved Lion Head Table Legs

Carved out of mahogany, the richly carved table legs depict a rather comic lion’s head and terminates with a lion’s claw foot. A New York architect was commissioned to produce three massive (5’ x 11’) tables supported by the suitably massive lion’s head feet. The tables were fabricated by furniture maker VCA, Inc. in Northampton, MA and Dimitrios carved the legs for each. Much later, one of the tables found its way into a home in Florida, which was sold. The new owner asked if he could buy the table as well as the house, and was refused. He took a picture, researched the provenance and origin of the table and then commissioned VCA and Dimitrios to produce a fourth lion’s head table.
