Learn about Nest of Tables

A set of three or more small occasional tables of graduated height, each one of which fits comfortably inside the other when not in use. Invented during the 18th century, they remain popular to the present day. Nests of tables of the Georgian and Victorian period are scarce, and consequently command high prices. But the form became fashionable again after 1900 and up until the present day, and there are multiple designs available. Australian made examples rarely exist prior to 1900. A nest comprising four tables is called a quartetto.
