Georgian Tea Table

Will Paulsen

Your eyes are not deceiving you, that really is a one board top of figured, San Domingo mahogany! The rest of the cleats, block, column, and tripod legs are also solid mahogany. Because everything is mahogany, there are no secondary woods to help identify the place of origin. The column is consistent with a London design, but it is also consistent with some from Charleston, South Carolina and from Newport, Rhode Island. Given that far more are from England, the present attribution is that this table is an 18th century, English, Chippendale tea table. The price will also reflect an English origin.
