Philadelphia Piecrust Tea Table - Floor Sample Sale

Winterthur Reproduction
Original Price:


Mixing traditional furniture with contemporary decor adds interest, contrast, and depth. This finely crafted reproduction is based on piecrust tea table on display in the Winterthur collection. This table features the uniquely American birdcage mechanism which joins the piecrust top to the column and allows the table top to either rotate freely, or be tilted for easy and attractive storage against the wall. The legs represent the perfect S-curve of the times.

This reproduction is faithful to the original and requires 23 hours of hand carving to achieve the high level of ornamentation on the piecrust edge, the decorative column and the fancy legs.

Winterthur's exacting standards require that reproductions may not vary more than 1/8th" of the original.

One of the most ingenious and distinctive features of the magnificent table (1765-1780) is the "bird cage" under the top . This mechanism joins the top to the shaft and allows the tabletop to rotate freely or to be tilted perpendicular to the floor for easy storage.
