|Date Description:||19th Century Extending Farmhouse Table|
|Country of Origin:||France|
A fine mid 19th century French Cherrywood Farmhouse Table. The superb planked top is located on the base, sitting above 2 extending leaves. The leaves, framed with cherrywood and with chestnut centre panels, are held on long lopers. When fully extended they are surprisingly firm, strong and rigid, becoming perfect extensions of the main table, not simply serving boards like most extensions. Either 1 or both leaves can be extended. With a single oak lined drawer, beautifully turned legs and the honeyed tones of antique cherrywood, this is an unusual and useful table for entertaining. It is completely original, with a lovely waxed surface. Circa 1840.
