Tables

"Often considered among the most important and valuable pieces of furniture in the room, tea tables, candlestands, and other forms present refined architectural features like dish tops, turned pedestals, finely shaped and carved legs and feet. In contrast, some of the most charming tables are also the most primitive. It's all in the objective of the maker. If there is a table you are looking for and do not see, please call or email, we may not have cataloged it yet."
