The collection is strong on Regency and George III furniture that has been acquired from the top dealers, such as Hyde Park Antiques, Mallett, Philip Colleck and Clinton Howell Antiques & Fine Art.
The 2ft 9in (93cm) wide, brass-mounted table has an estimate of $1500-3000 in the auction to be held in Bloomfield, New Jersey, on April 15.
It will be an online-only sale.
John Nye had a long career at Sotheby’s before he and his wife, Kathleen, acquired Dawson’s in 2003 and started Dawson & Nye.
With the move to Bloomfield seven years later, they renamed the business to Nye & Company.
