NB. These rare lobed or scalloped top tripods are often referred to as tea or supper tables.
It is commonly presumed that the lobes were carved to accommodate small china plates, normally a tea service.
It is worth noting that this scalloped design is considerably rarer than a pie crust top.

Ralph Edwards illustrates a similar scalloped tilt top tripod with a date of 1750, on p 528 of his ‘Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’, illus. 6.
