18TH CENTURY ANTIQUE PHILADELPHIA CHIPPENDALE WALNUT DISH TOP TEA TABLE - TILT TOP - CARVED TALON FEET. Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
With our highest compliments & utmost honors, Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this exceptional 18th century antique Chippendale tilt top tea table with ball and claw feet. When the feet have 3 claws they're referred to as talon feet and these are superbly executed with tons of character. The legs have a slender ankle and a rare stepped design at the knee sometimes referred to as an arch. The Walnut selected for the table is absolutely stunning with an exceptionally rare quilting pattern that's only found in a handful of trees.American Black Walnut was treasured by early American cabinet makers because of its excellent durability, workability, rich color, and interesting grain patterns. This was clearly made in a top tier cabinet shop and had the attention of an advanced carver.
The table has a 3 board Walnut top in an old surface, likely original. The dish top is well pronounced and because the top is made from Walnut opposed to Mahogany, the tabletop has not warped at all.The table has a birdcage mechanism which allows the top to swivel and we do have the wedge we just forgot to install it for the photos. The tabletop has a 32 1/4" diameter and is 28 3/4" tall when flipped down like in our gallery image and 46 3/4 tall when the top is flipped up.
The width at the base from claw to claw is 26 wide. We are a wholly owned family business in our third decade of continuous operation.
