A beautiful early provincial antique Spanish Shepherds walnut serving table circa 1790. Fabulous patina from years of use. A very early provincial piece of Spanish furniture to be seen from all angles/sides. This rare piece of furniture originates from the the hills of the Catalan Pyrenees from a shepherds cottage where would it would of been used as a serving/preparation table. We can date this exceptional survivor specifically to 1790/the turn of the century from the simplistic organic design with hand forged iron drop handles and thick/dense/rough hewn cut walnut timbers.
Original hand forged iron handles to front. Upper thick hand carved two plank walnut counter top with forged iron detailing. A frame base construction with peg and tenon joints. A very fine example and a rare piece of Spanish furniture.
This is a complete one of a kind and to be used as intended as a counter/desk or preparation table/kitchen table or hallway/living room console. Perfect for a commercial shop environment as a counter. This piece looks good from all angles with deep mellow graining to all sides. Given it’s age there are historical woodworm holes and knocks and dings associated with age. We have given the piece heavy woodworm treatment all over extensively, internally and externally, followed by a deep wax to lift the colour.
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.
