This rare and inviting George II mahogany tea table features delicate inlay and a tilting top. Attributed to Frederick Hintz, this table's scalloped edges were designed to protect the tea wares. The tilting top allows the table to be stored flat against a wall when not in use. The table's brass and mother-of-pearl inlay is in the style of master ébéniste André-Charles Boulle. Circa 1745
