EXTREMELY FINE COUNTRY QUEEN ANNE SPLAY LEG TEA TABLE, COASTAL CONNECTICUT OR RHODE ISLAND, CIRCA 1760.

Category:

Pine and figured maple, with a fine old finish. Top 31 ¾ x 22 ¾, height 24 inches.

This is one of the most delicate and successful country Queen Anne tea tables we have ever owned, distinguished by an unusual 24 inch height, a distinctively thin rectangular top with bread-board ends, a dramatically double splayed base, delicately turned and tapering legs with elongated squared sections at the top and retaining the most exceptional original tiny pad feet, which incredibly have survived in perfect condition.

Literature:
A table with similar turned legs descended in the Cranston family of Rhode island and another is illustrated in Barry A. Greenlaw, New England Furniture at Williamsburg (Williamsburg, 1974), no. 120.

Provenance:
Midwestern private collection.
