Object Description

An Extremely Rare Mid 18th Century George II Period Walnut
Tea Table Having Well Figured Foldover Top Enclosing
Divisions To Well Raised On Elegant Turned Legs With
Carved Lappet Detail To Top And Original Pad Feet

(A slightly unusual, but most charming, take on the stereotypical
George II Period Tea Table, which we have never come across
before. Often you find these tables allow access to two different
folding surfaces, one of which is baized for playing cards at, and
other solid wood for serving tea at. This table however has been
designed clearly specifically for serving tea at with an unusual
moulded lip around the outside when opened. Under the folding
top there is some lovely quality divided sections to the deep well
which is almost certainly designed for keeping the silver required
for serving tea from in. The table is also constructed from excellent
quality walnut which retains a warm and rich colour and is raised on
incredibly elegant turned legs. A charming and unusual piece which
could be used in a variety of different environments.)
