This is an elegant and beautifully proportioned solid hardwood, tripod table or wine table with a tilting top and dates to the Mid Georgian Chippendale period, circa 1760.
The circular top is made from solid hardwood, possibly walnut which has a finely figured grain and lovely mellow colour. The top tilts and is fixed to a square block which locks into place with a metal snap lock catch. The solid slightly tapering stem is particularly good with a well carved vase baluster at its base. The three legs are dovetailed into the stem and have a good spread with carved feet.
This table has lovely proportions and has developed a very good mellow colour and patination from well over 250 years of use. This is a very beautiful original antique table and would makes an ideal side tables, for a lamp or display piece, or as a wine or end of sofa occasional table.

Good: Two hardwood butterflies have been set into the underside top ( not visible from the top) at some time in its history. This would have been to stop any movement in the top as these sometimes move within the timber as the wood ages. Wear consistent with age and use. Very Good antique condition. Structurally sound and stable. Excellent mellow Colour. Please see images.
