John Goddard (Dartmouth, MA, 1724 - Newport, RI, 1785) is a famous Newport, Rhode Island cabinetmaker of the 18th century. Goddard was widely recognized as one of early America’s most talented cabinet-makers and his creations were sought-after by the port city’s most well-to-do merchants. [1]

An 18th century mahogany bureau table carved by Newport’s most celebrated cabinetmaker was sold for a stunning $5.7 million at Christie’s New York on 19 January 2011, placing it among the highest auction prices ever realized for an item of American furniture.[1]

The masterfully designed and crafted table, known as the Catherine Goddard Chippendale Block-and-Shell Carved and Figured Mahogany Bureau Table, is attributed to the Newport, Rhode Island cabinetmaker John Goddard (1724-1785).
