Swigert based this Philadelphia tea table (34-1/2 in. dia. by 29 in. tall) on a Garvan carver table he saw at an auction years ago. The solid mahogany piece pays homage to the original with its pie-crust top, C-scroll and acanthus leaf carvings, and ball-and-claw feet, but Swigert added his own touch with the knee carvings. The table also has a tilting top with a brass catch. The finish is shellac.
