Cadwalader tea table and bedstead.
Bed post stopped flute compared to tea table stopped flute.
Most notable in the design of the tea table is the omission of the usual birdcage to allow a longer stem that accommodates a stopped flute. This is designed to respect the design of the bed posts.
Tea table piecrust edge and bed post collar.
The tongue and leaf carved collar on the underside of the spiral turning on the bed posts is repeated on the scalloped edge of the tea table. The same punch mark decoration and acanthus leaf carving is also seen on both items.
