Dating to circa 1950, this robust French oak beam dining Table is reminiscent of monastery tables seen during the Middle Ages. Old monasteries would often have several of these tables arranged in a great hall, where clergymen would gather for meals.
This table boasts a bleached finish that showcases the extraordinary wood grain and expertly executed construction joints (a mix of mortise and tenon connections along with square pegs). The robust 3 1/2-inch thick tabletop is offset by a slightly arched stretcher that gracefully traverses through scrolled trestle legs, securely fastened by substantial pins. For added stability, an additional support element is discreetly positioned beneath the tabletop at the pinnacle of the stretcher’s arch. Elevate your dining experience with this exceptional piece that seamlessly marries vintage charm with enduring craftsmanship.
CONDITION: Very good condition with very light rubs to the top, commensurate with age and use. Minor age separations to the base and stretcher.
