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.
Materials and Techniques:
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.
Origin: Probably Connecticut
Date: c. 1770.
Dimensions: Height 27.25" | Diameter 41.25"
