Do you know the difference between a tea table and a game table?

Do you know the difference between a tea table and a game table? 

 

Quite simply, the tea table has a polished surface on the interior and a game table has a baize surface.   With the fashion of taking tea and other refreshments, the folding side table became quite common in 18th century homes.  While the tables with baize interiors were used for the most part as game tables, tea tables with their polished interiors were certainly more functional.

 

Take these simple, yet elegant tables.  Which do you think is a game table and which is a tea table?  

 

Not sure, discover the answer for yourself at Mill House Antiques.  More than an ordinary experience.
