Rhode Island Porringer-Top Tea Table
figured maple, 27"h, 34½"w, 24"d currently available
Sometimes referred to as a "common tea table" in early inventories, tea tables with turned and tapered legs were less expensive than their cabriole-legged counterparts. The porringer top was a Rhode Island favorite. The table top has a slightly rounded, beveled edge that shows the porringer shape well.
Shown in figured (tiger) maple, but also available in mahogany, walnut, and cherry. The inset shows the top detail.
