This antique French dining table is constructed of Oak and was made in the mid 1800’s, probably used in an elegant French Mas. The long top is supported by 2 balusters at each end and 3 balusters along the center beam stretcher. The legs at either end rest upon a thick block of oak with curved shoulders, and there is a long beam under the table top between the center balusters which runs the length of the table.
The top consists of long boards which frame 6 rectangular insets, all joined by mortise and tenon. The quarter sawn panels show beautiful graining and add interesting contrast. Old wooden block repairs can be seen throughout the table, which give it wonderful character and feel. Today, it will be perfect as a dining table, a narrow foyer table, or against a wall as a console.
CONDITION: Beautiful old condition with some nicks and wear as see in photos. Beam below top has old worming (not visible without crawling beneath table). Old block repairs and fills in areas.
