Large 18th.c. Gate Leg Table.

IMG_5925

Very large mid 18th.c. Oak gateleg dining table c.1760. Rare in this size, it will comfortably seat 10 people. Plank top on an exceptional ‘spider’ double gateleg base featuring 8 barley twist carved legs and stretchers. A well travelled table this, and one with a tantalising history. Although certainly of British origin, it was discovered on Saint Helena, the tiny volcanic island in the Southern Atlantic to where Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled following his defeat a the battle of Waterloo. From there it was moved to South Africa before making its way back to North Wales several decades ago. Could it be that the man who once ruled that vast Empire brooded on his decline whilst eating his pomme frites at this very table?
Condition is solid and sturdy with some earlier repairs to the top and a couple of holes to one end around a knot in the timber.

Dimensions: width 71”, depth 23”/69”, height 30”.
