Magnificent Six Plank Top Raised on “T” Trestles and Sledge Feet
With Unusual Drop Flap Extension to One End
Richly Coloured and Lustrously Patinated Solid Fruitwood
Northern European c. 1800
30 ¼” high x 133 ¼” wide x 32 ½” deep
A quite exceptional and unusual trestle form dining table in solid fruitwood. This table benefits from a glorious rich honey colour and amazingly well patinated surface. The elegant slender ”T” form trestles are supported on wide well drawn sledge feet and joined by a simple central stretcher. At one end there is a single drop leaf that can be raised to accommodate a further three diners when required. In our experience this is a genuine ”one off” design, in fine condition and perfectly functional as well as great looking. What more could one need from a dining table?
