A very early and rare antique French refectory table. Dating from around 1830 this is a stunning example and quite a rare survivor. Constructed from a single thick cut mahogany plank top with fruitwood legs and base shows very high quality. This is a quintessential country provincial table with deep mellow patina. The top features inch thick solid plank of mahogany with radiant grain patterns and knots. Supported by a substantial trestle style base with beautiful turned legs on each corner ending with bun feet. The legs are conjoined by a thick H shaped stretcher. The table also (these are normally lost over time) has the two extending side panels that can be inserted to extend the table.
We have gently refurbished the table to bring back to life the use and beauty of this fabulous statement piece of furniture.
196cm width (without extending leafs)
Extending leafs 40cm each (total width extended 276cm)
