This is a fine quality antique English 17th Century style solid oak refectory table, measuring 8ft long, which seats up to 10 people, circa 1970, in excellent original condition. The English oak table top boasts a stunning top, comprising three solid oak 1½ inch planks with cleated ends, displaying a 17th century farmhouse design. The oak refectory table has been constructed in the traditional manner with mortise and tenon joints, and then pegged, with a straight frieze each side. The 17th century table is raised on baluster turned legs, on block feet, which are united by a central stretcher along the length of the table, and a further stretcher to each end. The solid oak table top boasts a lovely colour & grain configuration, having been cleaned and French polished in our workshop, to a professional standard. The oak refectory table will seat up to 10 people, or 8 people with plenty of room (please see photos with chairs around the table). Benefitting from a central stretcher, it allows you to conveniently place kitchen chairs under the table, without any restrictions, unlike earlier tables that have stretchers positioned on the outside of the legs, which prevents you placing the chairs under the table. It is also sufficiently tall enough to fit your legs underneath and is sufficiently wide at 3ft, to accommodate serving dishes in the centre of the table. The oak refectory table also boasts a generous over-hang each end of the table, allowing plenty of space for armchairs. The oak refectory table dismantles into 2 sections (tabletop & frame), facilitating easier lifting and carrying into the home.
This oak table would look superb in either a traditional or contemporary setting, in a variety of rooms from the kitchen to the dining room. This oak kitchen table would certainly grace any home. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
