American Carved Tilt Top Tea Table

back | Antique Gallery | next

Tea tables, in eighteenth century America, were used primarily for the serving of tea to guests, but the smaller tables were also used as candlestands. These tables also referred to as pie crust tea tables were placed in the center of a drawing room with a tea service or placed in an upright position against a wall until needed. Pie crust candle stand tables during the Chippendale period, were so called, because of the raised and decoratively carved edge of the round top. For more tea tables, be sure to check out the Carved Chippendale Tea Table and the Queen Anne Tilt-Top Tea Table.
