This tea table is distinctive for its use of highly figured mahogany and its top with a lip carved from the solid, the latter a very rare feature for the form. This table is also fitted with candleslides, an embellishment found on few other tables of the type. For two other Boston tea tables fitted with candleslides, see one owned by Sarah Bradlee Fulton (1740-1836) with a history of descent in the Bradlee and Croninshield families of Salem and one at the State Department owned by the John Hooper family of Marblehead, Massachusetts.1
