Unusual Dark-Brown Painted Tea Table

This is a very unusual form for a tea table.  Painted a dark "Spanish Brown", this circular tea table has a large top over a birdcage connecting to a wide turned pedestal (6") over dramatic cabriole legs with a slight buckling and chamfered edges terminating in pronounced and bulbous snake feet. This is an eccentric, but desirable addition to any good collection.

Spanish brown paint over maple.

Two small patches on the top and wear indicative of age on the base.  The brown paint is mid-nineteenth century.
