William and Mary pine and maple tavern table featuring a wide overhanging top, bulbous vasiform turned legs, straight stretchers and turned button feet.
The black painted surface is a late 19th century or early 20th century addition over the original red wash. The bottom of the feet show holes where later casters were added and removed.
New England, possibly Coastal Connecticut, 1720 – 1745.
Eastern white pine and maple construction.
Design tip: It is hard to think of a single room in the house that couldn’t benefit from a tavern table. We think cocktails on the sunporch, game night in the family room, and the overflow of books in the library or study. Smaller than a dining table, but more amply proportioned than a side table, its uses are limited only by one’s imagination.
