Newport Tea Table

The original table, upon which our copy is based, was made in 1765 for Nicholas Brown of Newport, RI.  A masterpiece in its own right, this table class begins with a full-sized drawing. The joinery, sculptural aprons, and top follow. Rounding out the week is carving ball and claw feet with pierced talons.
