17th Century Whitewashed Table from Southwest France or Spain

This phenomenal 17th century, whitewashed table has a rare single plank top with a slight overhang at either end. There are hand forged square iron nailheads around the periphery of the top, and the apron has two large drawers separated by a decorated center section. The motifs are fan-like lunettes that are connected with linear pieces of decorated wood. Circles with florets at their center are centered between the fan shaped lunettes. The iron knobs are versions of differently shaped flower heads. All this rests upon a slightly stepped out, square shaped molding with gadrooned flutes going around the entire table. The back apron is without ornamentation with the exception of the fluted square molding at the apron’s base. The six legs are turned balusters and the stretchers are peripheral while the feet are flattened balls. This style of table was typical of the Southwestern portion of France, and Northern Spain. At some point in its history, it was stripped and whitewashed.

CONDITION: Old wood worm damage, losses to wood, age separations, whitewashing as seen in photos.
