Rare Chippendale Inlaid Cherrywood Porringer-Top Table, Eastern Connecticut, Circa 1780

Provenance

Nathan Liverant and Son, Colchester, Connecticut.

Catalogue Note

This table closely relates to a cherry porringer top one-drawer stand illustrated in a Nathan Liverant and Son advertisement in The Magazine Antiques for October 1994Both tables display a porringer-top with very similar inlaid decoration.  The porringer-top form was popular in Rhode Island during the mid-18th century.  The table illustrated in Antiques features straight turned Queen Anne legs and a scrolled apron similar to those found on stands made along the Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island border, particularly in the Stonington and Mystic areas.
