CHIPPENDALE TEA TABLE
This Fine Quality Tea Table has a typical NY flat top made of a single piece of choice crotch mahogany with a rounded edge. The circular rimless tip-top is attached to a revolving bird-cage platform with small baluster shaped pillars. This is secured to its conforming baluster shaped shaft with a collarless wedge. The boldly turned shaft terminates to three arched cabriole legs each with distinctive carved scalloped shells and pendants on their knees. The undersides of the legs and the base of the pillar have notched edges. The Tea Tables cabriole legs flow downwards to webbed claw feet enclosing a flattened ball.
A scarce New York example in wonderful condition.
