Queen Anne Porringer Top Tea Table, probably Connecticut,  ca. 1750-1760.
Maple. Excellent condition, refinished surface with mellow color. Inscribed Wheeler in chalk under the top. An exceptional example of form in a New England tea table. The development of the shaped skirt with repeated lobes is certainly one of this table's strongest features. The full disc-pad feet are slightly kicked out, accentuating the splay of the legs. And the underside of the top shows great color and oxidation.

Dimensions: 
26 1/2"h x 38 3/8"w x 29 1/2"d
