Another tea table. This one is copied from an original table that exhibits characteristics of tables made in both Salem, Mass. and Newport, Rhode Island. The wood is mahogany. The top is a single, solid mahogany crotch. The color is achieved with water based analine dye. The top is finished with a tung oil and varnish mix. The base is finished in shellac.
