Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The colour and patina are fantastic. There really is very little wear for such an early table, which shows it stayed in the same home for most of it's life and lived on a carpet as the legs are in good condition. (The legs of tables on stone floors usually rot and lose height).
The thick long two plank top was cut from one tree. One board is a little wider than the other and both boards have patches where a knot hole ran through. Knot holes when large can become fractured and come loose when they are this size so this leads to a type of conservation by inserting a patch with the same or similar timber to the top. The patina and colour of the patches show they are contemporary to when the table was made.
The robust chamfered legs are an early feature. The centre stretcher holds the structure firmly. There are some old marks on the side rail which was a way of proof of ownership in those early days.
