Cricket tables are English pieces of furniture first created in the early 16th century. This style of occasional table consists of a round top and three angled legs, usually with an under-tier set between the legs. While the origin of the name is unknown, it might have originated as a reference to the game of cricket, which has three stumps in the game (as there are three legs to these tables). Or perhaps it's a variation of the word Crackets, which were low, household stools. Either way, the look is decidedly British and quite classic.
