William and Mary Table, Candlestand, Chamfered Cruciform Base, Circular Top
New England, Circa 1725, Maple
Circular top on turned post resting on shaped cross base
(It appears that the top, standard and base have always been together, however, the top is screwed to cleat from underside; pegs have been installed through the side-of-cleats likely securing/tightening the top. We mention this because we tried to examine the underside of top but were unable. There is scattered evidence of minor beetle infestation of the period and of course, inactive.
