Acquisition Gift of the Estate of Ida Dudley Dale
Ownership and History This unique table, a fine example of fancy parlor furniture, belonged to Ida Dudley Dale (1887-1955). Miss Dale was descended from the Griffin and Martling families, and she was an active member of the Staten Island Historical Society. In her youth, she lived with her parents on Castleton Avenue and (after 1902) on Manor Road in West New Brighton. In later years, she lived at 372 Prospect Avenue, Randall Manor, in a home she called "Memory Cottage," surrounded by mementos of her family's history.
