Rare seventeenth Century credence or folding table in oak, of excellent colour and patination. The octagonal shaped hinged thick top opening and supported by a rear swing gate. The leaves held by later old iron plates. The canted frieze and gate with reeded decoration, and sides with a pair of inverted finials. Standing on ring turned column legs, the angle design of the side stretchers is a rare example.
Originally at Nymans, Sussex. The great house was partly burnt down in 1947, and the remaining house and famous gardens were gifted to the National Trust in 1953. Some of the family – along with part of the remaining contents from the west end of the house – moved to Gloucestershire, from whence this table has come.
See ‘Nymans – I. Sussex: The Residence of Lieut.-Colonel Leonard Messel’ in Country Life, September 10th 1932, pp.292-297; and ‘Nymans – II. Sussex: The Residence of Lieut.-Colonel Leonard Messel’ in Country Life, September 17th 1932, pp. 320-325.
For an identical, if not the same table, see Victor Chinnery, 'Oak Furniture: The British Tradition' (Antique Collectors’ Club, 1990), plate 3:209.
