Piecrust tables were developed in the 18th century. They were typically used for serving tea or coffee, and do qualify as a type of tea table. They are often associated with Queen Anne and Chippendale designs.

This table has some wonderful detail in the ‘ball and claw’ feet and a lovely fluted central column with twist carving ending in a nice ‘birdcage’ for the tilt top.
