Townsend Slipper-Foot Tea Table
mahogany, 27"h, 32"w, 21"d currently available in figured mahogany
The classic Newport rectangular tea table of timeless grace and simplicity. This slipper-foot design is in the manner of Christopher or early John Townsend, as exemplified by the strong sweep of the leg, and is an exacting replica of an original. The apron is narrow, lending lift and lightness to the design. The one-board top is surrounded by a radiused top molding with edge bead.
The construction is mortise and tenon and the top is let into the frame. The applied top molding holds the top and allows for seasonal movement.
