A Small Late 17th Century Elm and Oak Side Table

The top, cut from a single thick board of beautifully marked elm, displaying burrs, knots and a very wild grain, having a double-moulded edge, it is attached to the rails by 7 large square pegs.

Beneath the top is a single drawer, the front cut from a very similar board to the top, and retains an old iron pull.

Interestingly, and with regard to thrift, the joiner has re-used two lovely oak panels for the bottom of the drawer, each cared with a lozenge design.

The oak “gun barrel” legs, are joined by stout square sectioned stretchers, and the whole is of a very, very, good rich colour and patina.

Elm was often used in furniture making in the Wiltshire/Dorset area, and the lozenge motif found in the drawer bottom is also a West Country design, so I would say the table was West Country, circa 1680-90.

Width 29 inches, depth 18 inches, height 28 inches.

Ref 2408
