A Period Queen Anne Tea Table, Tavern Table, Splayed Legs, Scalloped Aprons

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


A Period Queen Anne Tea Table, Tavern Table, Splayed Legs, Scalloped Aprons
New England, Circa 1725 to 1750
Maple, entire view 1

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 were 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.

Oval Top Tavern Table,
New England, Circa 1730 – 1750, Red Wash White pine and ash, a nice form in old dry surface… - SOLD


Oval Top Tavern Table New England, Circa 1730,  view 2

Although rarely encountered, the use of ash legs is sometimes found on Boston highboys. The Oval top raised on double-splayed block and ring-turned reverse-tapered legs resting on button feet; joined by plain apron and box stretcher. The red paint was likely refreshed during the 19th century when a neatly fashioned cleat with tapered ends was added; likely to facilitate the removal of slight cupping of top. We commissioned our expert cabinetmaker to carefully remove the top and photograph all aspects. The top appears to be the first and only top secured with original wooden pegs; cleat is affixed to top by square cut nails and a combination of handmade screws and later screws.
