Catalogue Note

A nearly identical table is in the collections of Historic New England and is illustrated in Brock Jobe and Myrna Kaye, New England Furiture: The Colonial Era, (Boston, Massachusetts: Houghton Mifflin, 1984), fig. 74, pp. 300-1.  Both tables have the distinctive five-toe claws and finely-shaped cleats found on the highest quality Newport tilt-top tables. Both also have unusual carved channels on the sides of the legs.

For a detail study on Rhode Island tilt-top tea tables see Patricia E. Kane, "The Palladian Style in Rhode Island Furniture: Fly Tea Tables", in American Furniture, ed. Luke Becerdite, (Milwaukee, WI: Chipstone Foundation, 1999), pp. 1 -16.
