This handsome ball leg table was hand-carved in the Netherlands using both oak and pine. Known as a “bolpoottafel“, the design incorporating large ball legs is instantly recognizable and sought after for its unique appearance.
Made from two boards of beautiful oak, the 1 ¼” thick top extends well beyond the pine frieze below. The frieze, which has been constructed via dovetail joinery, has a 23 ½” wide drawer with a geometrical wooden knob. Beneath the molded base of the frieze are four turned ball legs. The legs are joined to each other for stability by four block connectors and underneath each joint is a bun foot.
Our Dutch oak and pine ball leg table has a minimal number of carved embellishments, instead utilizing bulbous legs and feet to offset the straight lines. This table has a great patina can be used with any type of interior design and would make an interesting sofa table.
CONDITION: Wear commensurate to age and use, with minor age separations, rubs, and losses. Old repairs and fills are visible. The top has a slight bend, which is normal for wood of this age. Most of the table was carved from oak in the 1700’s, while later additions utilized pine, which is still antique.
