A beautiful early antique French Château Provincial elm Dairy preparation table circa 1850. Fabulous patina from years of use. A very provincial piece of French furniture with unique sliding table top (top slides both ways on runners). Peg and tenon joints, wide plank lined deep under storage that would of originally held the dairy provisions of the house that are accessed by slide table top. Thick plank table top with open grain. Altogether a very fine example and a rare piece of furniture. These are highly sought after tables which are used as intended as preparation tables or as kitchen console islands. This piece looks good from all angles with deep mellow graining to all sides. These statement pieces of furniture are getting near impossible to source and are great investments for the future to be used and admired for years to come. We have lightly refurbished the table with wax and woodworm treatment.
