    Charleston Chippendale Mahogany Antique Tea Table circa 1760.

    Rare small scale tea table, approximately 26" diameter, attributed to Henry Burnett (died 1761).

    The best carved base.

    Note: cleats were trimmed back with shrinkage to the top; they extended over the plane of the top.

    Top is approximately 25" one way and 26" against the grain of the single board pie crust top. It stands 28" tall.

    In the opinion of our cabinetmakers, the top and base are original to one another. However, contrary opinion exists.

    We would have not bought the table without reassurance that the top and bottom are matching.

    This table invites serious inquiries.

    The earliest carving that can be attributed to a specific Charleston artisan is from the shop of Henry Burnett.

    On April 9, 1750, the South Carolina Gazette reported: “HENRY BURNETT, House and Ship carver from London, gives Notice to all persons who may be pleased . . . to employ him . . . that their work will be done in the neatest and best manner and on the most reasonable terms.”

    The location of Burnett’s shop is not known, but he advised potential customers to “enquire at Mr. Thomas Bentley’s on Elliott’s Wharff.”

    The furniture and architectural carving attributed to Burnett’s shop indicates that he received the patronage of important Charleston builders and cabinetmakers.
