18th Century Queen Anne Marble Topped Round Side Table or Pedestal / Stand
During Queen Anne’s reign (1702-1714) she introduced the custom of social tea drinking. This created a need for small movable furniture such as our small round table here. The piece is supported on four cabriole legs with smooth pad feet. The edge is gently scalloped and rises upwards to the inserted marble top - beige/taupe in colour.
A fine piece in it's original condition with original finish. Can also be used as a plant stand or pedestal.

This style of furniture is much more delicate than its predecessor. It was one way for the young Colonists to show their own unique style, with each regional area initiating special design elements. Forms tend to be attenuated in New England. Chair rails were more often mortised through the back legs when made in Philadelphia. New England furniture makers preferred pad feet.
