This is an attractive and superb quality antique French provincial carved oak rectangular coffee table, circa 1860. The top of the coffee table features stunning oak boards, finished with a carved moulded edge. Below, there are two working oak lined drawers, which feature hand dovetail joints, which is ideal for storing magazine and smaller items. The drawers retain their original carved “green man” style handles. The frame of the table is constructed using the original peg construction method and the frieze is decorated with profuse floral carvings to the front, with recessed moulded panels to the sides and rear. Below, the coffee table is raised on four strong barley twist legs, united by a central barley twist stretcher, terminating on block feet. This period coffee table is unique and quirky with stunning quality; it would be ideal in either a traditional or contemporary setting.
This item features a rich mid to dark brown oak colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This item would compliment any home, office or living room. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture!
This coffee table is in good condition. Adapted from a taller table some time ago, the table boasts its original polish; it has a fantastic colour and patination to the top. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the table, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. There is no damage; ink or water stains to the top of the table. The two working drawer are in excellent working order; it features the original carved handles and closes flush to the frame. Some old ink stains visible inside the drawers (see photos). The table is well constructed, solid in joint (does not wobble) and is ready to use.
