MahoganyTea Table, Tip and Turn, Geo. III Ca. 1760
England Ca. 1760
An unusual Georgian tea table with carved scroll leafage at the tops of the knees. The circular top is attached to the base by a “bird cage” hinge and swivel device that allows the table to be tilted up to more easily fit into a corner and when down to be turned while in use.The foot is a type also not commonly seen which more resembles a dog’s paw.
Very good antique condition. Only the key that secures the top to the bottom is replaced. Normal wear and signs of usage. At some time a screw was set into the bottom plate of the bird cage device to keep the top from turning but removed long ago.
