The Origin of Cricket Tables
As the name goes cricket tables are in essence English pieces of furniture which were first created somewhere in the early 16th century. Examples of these tables have been often seen in Scotland, Ireland or Wales and such other places. In general terms, a ‘cricket table’ refers to an occasional table with a round top, set on top of 3 angled legs, usually with an under tier set between the legs. The three legged table concept was developed maybe because the three legged form is comparatively steadier on uneven ground, stone flag floors in the taverns, inns and cottages back then.
