In the past, parlour rooms or vestibules were often used for socializing and serving delicious treats. When tea prices were high before the American Revolution, the ability to serve beverages was limited to middle or higher classes. Every extravagant home had a distinguished tea table in every room worthy of entertaining. Pie crust tables were one of the many sensational innovations to arise from those times of antiquity. Laurel Crown’s master craftsmen have worked tirelessly to carve, sand, and finish our signature pie crust table to replicate the same authentic quality found in furniture from earlier time periods.
We use only Honduran mahogany to reproduce our Chippendale pie crust table because this popular wood is flexible to work with and offers a magnificent reddish-brown shade that exudes sophistication. The classic mahogany stain is accentuated by a striking satin semi-gloss finish for a dramatic charm.
Each pie crust table includes an array of stately characteristics:
- Unique birdcage mechanism allows the table’s top to tilt up for storage when not in use
- Hand-carved Neoclassical details, molded gadroon edging, and rich graining
- Tripartite base terminates to cabriole legs with classic claw-and-ball feet
