From France, circa 1870, this oak farm table has a nice, thick rectangular top which is composed of 4 long boards with softly worn corners. Throughout the table top, one can see small square blocks. These are old, hand carved restorations that were inserted to replace any knots that were losing their integrity over the years. The two baluster shaped legs are held in place by a cross beam stretcher which passes just above the undulating platform feet. The stretcher is held in place by large dowels.
This French oak farm table has tremendous character with an aesthetically pleasing wood color, interesting old block inserts, and thick oak boards. It can be used as a dining table, breakfast table, or even as a sofa table or in a library.
CONDITION: Good strong condition with some old worming and restorations over the years. Old block wood inserts, and wood fill to splits. Some gouging to wood. Corners of table have slightly bent over time.
