Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Gateleg tables were used for informal dining in family rooms in the home, and it is rare to find a walnut table of this size. The joiner has selected timber with decorative and fluid, wavy configuration for the top. The barley-twist extending into baluster turnings are extremely elegant and harmonise with the size of the top, creating a balanced proportion. The colour and patina have matured into an excellent crusty surface, particularly on the legs and stretchers. As is generally found, one leaf has been used less often than the other and retains a slightly deeper surface and colour.
