Antique English Chippendale period carved 'pie crust' tripod table in mahogany. George III, period, circa 1760.

The top is raised on a 'birdcage' action allowing the top to swivel and tilt.

The tapering baluster column has spiral carving, terminating in an elegant tripod with elongated ball and claw feet.

Nb. These rare tables are always superior when raised on a 'birdcage support', with one piece tops and come with the 'pie crust' edge carved out of the solid, without any joints. A useful tip is to ensure the top is approximately equal to the spread of the base. This will result in all important, correct for period, proportions. See Arthur Negus ''English Furniture'’ p.123, fig. 58, for a very similar pie crust table which he dates to 1770.
This fine table has a one piece, well figured and patinated top, and is of excellent colour.
