  1. Cricket tables are country furniture meant to be portable, outdoors and in; with three legs providing stability on uneven floors and surfaces. These tables were and are used for various household tasks as occasional tables and side tables to serve tea, hold candles, and play card games.

    These tables originated in rural England. Their practical design made them a staple in 18th and 19th-century English cottages. Typically made from locally sourced woods like oak, ash, or pearwood, cricket tables were built to withstand everyday use. The round top and three-legged design are characteristic of this type of table, reflecting the simplicity and functionality of rural furniture.
