Suffield Connecticut Tea Table
walnut, 27"h, 24"w, 18"d   

A number of unique designs were made in 18th-century Connecticut, among them this diminutive tea table that descended in a Suffield family. It is remarkable for its slender and graceful legs that end in pad feet on flared disks. The top is crotch-grained walnut that has been bookmatched to enhance the pattern. The top is dished from the solid to create the tray edge. Below the top, a bold ogee molding completes the transition between the frame and top.  Candle slides extend from either side.
