Antique Refectory Table
Our Stock # LFA-1179
This is an English oak refectory table dating to c.1700
A rich, warm glow emanates from the two plank top of this fabulous table with cleated ends later dressed with quadrant moulding. Beneath, the bulbous turned legs are united by an 'H' stretcher with the centre rail doubling as a foot rest.
The carved frieze features scrolls and foliate detail appearing on one side of the table only; a trait that still divides opinion as to whether these tables were originally designed to be side tables or whether they were placed on a raised dias with the frieze facing the room leaving ample leg room behind for dignitaries to be seated.
Superb example and a stunning piece presented in good antique condition. Solid joints and construction. Delivered waxed & polished ready for the home.
