Victorian Industrial Workbench Table, circa 1868
Victorian Industrial workbench table dating to circa 1868 Industrial oak and cast iron workbench table circa 1868, the distressed three plank top over brick coloured cast iron stand with X-frame stretchers, ideal as a console table, media stand or desk / work station, fill of character with wonderful patina. Industrial oak and cast iron workbench table was made by the Midland Railway Company (MRC) the company that constructed St Pancras Station which opened in 1868 and is one of the wonders of Victorian engineering. Along with the former Midland Grand Hotel, it is a masterpiece of Victorian Gothic Architecture and one of the most elegant stations in the World. St Pancras Station was built by the Midland Railway Company (MRC) to connect London with some of England’s major cities. It was intended to make a grand statement about the Company with a display of physical magnificence. To assist them in this they appointed engineers William Henry Barlow, chief engineer (MRC) and Roland Mason Ordish who were responsible for the train shed and the overall layout of the site; and George Gilbert Scott, as architect for the hotel and station accommodation which was completed in 1876. The train station design is a unique response to its geographic context but also reflects thinking of the day in respect of station design and operation; the platform deck was raised up on a grid of 688 cast-iron columns in order to allow steam engines to pass over the Regent’s canal just to the north. Condition report: The plank top has marks and indentions from its previous use over the years, the front edge and back lip of the upper section are later additions, the legs and stand are distressed and in original condition, a very solid and heavy piece. Dimensions: Height 36” inches / 91cm Depth 23” inches / 59cm Width 72.5” inches / 184cm.
