Tilt-Top Table

This is a fine tilt top table made by Kittinger under license from the Newport Preservation Society, Newport, Rhode Island.

The table from which this was copied originally belonged to Solomon Southwick, the editor of the Newport Mercury, and was said to have been buried during the British occupation of Newport. The original is on display at the Newport Historical Society's headquarters.

The spiral fluted urn is proof of the Townsend-Goddard influence. The revolving "birdcage" enables the top to be tilted to a vertical position.

H - 28"
D - 28 3/4"
