A Fine Queen Anne Red Painted Tea Table, Original Surface, Outstanding & Rare

Antique Queen Anne Red Painted Tea Table in Original Surface, Circa 1750, angle view

This attractive tap table retains its original, untouched red painted surface with a warm mellow patina. The table has a rectangular two-part top and squared edge. This top is affixed to the rails with four pegs. The painted surface on the top is excellent with a few scattered scuffs. The top rests on a rectangular frame with simple squared rails that join the blocked tops of the turned legs. The legs, which are gently splayed, are turned and tapered to a high pad foot. The table is in outstanding condition with no significant repairs. There is a finely executed early 19th century repair to a crack at one corner of the top; corners are slightly rounded; pegs securing top are original. This table was found at a flea market in Hingham, Massachusetts in the 1960’s. Ex-Antique Associates and Pam Boynton

Previous Offerings or Gone to New Homes

Tea Table, Tilt Top, Queen Anne
Connecticut, Circa 1790 to 1800
Great surface, folky feet - SOLD

The table features a generous top, a boldly turned shaft and a tri-partite base; dovetailed battens secure the top to birdcage mechanism of extremely robust and whimsical design, with a highly unusual and sophisticated locking device composed of wood, employing the spring-actuated flexibility of the wood itself to engage it.
The large size and refined joinery of this particular table are characteristics may be associated with Chapin School examples. This large size is excellent for use as a breakfast or bridge table or small space dining table. For a related example by Amzi Chapin see: Thomas P. and Alice K. Kugelman with Robert Lionetti, Connecticut Valley

Queen Anne Tavern Table, Splay Legs, Oval Top, Scalloped Aprons, Turned Legs
New England, Circa 1725 to 1750
Mellow brown color with traces of original red wash of paint, full height
Published within Masterpieces of Furniture, by Verna Cook Salomonsky, Plate 43 - SOLD

Examination of this rare and outstanding table was done to determine authenticity, specifically whether the top was original to the base. The table, having turned legs joined by stretchers and scalloped aprons features a mellow brown color with remaining evidence of red wash of paint. This red paint is more noticeable at the more protected upper areas of base. The top was removed to examine it for previous and present attachments. The top, which was originally held to its base with four wooden pegs, is now held by screws. These screws are utilizing the original peg holes in the top. A deformed shape in the wood of the top around the holes can be clearly seen on the underside. The wood movement and shaping was caused from the top shrinking and expanding around the original wooden pins. The present screws are small enough that they did not disturb this evidence and the shape of the square wooden pin is still visible on the underside of the top. This same wooden pin evidence is still present in the top of the legs. Two battens or cleats are attached to the underside of the top, most likely to prevent it from cupping and keeping it relatively flat. A shadow line on the top of the base the thickness of this batten is visible on the sides of the base which are not in contact with the battens. This shadow line indicates that at some point this top was rotated 90-degrees. Several additional holes in the top of the legs bear witness to this reattachment. All holes in the top of the legs can be accounted for between the two different attachments and no additional holes are present. The coloration on the underside of the top and on the inside of the aprons is consistent and the top shows no signs of not being original to the base; the conclusion is that this is an authentic period table retaining its original top. (H: 24.75"; top: 31.25 by 24.75")
