Early Georgian Refectory Table

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A hand hewn George I period chestnut refectory preparation or serving table, which may have been originally made to serve as a kitchen dough table; with apron drawers at each end for dough storage. Its end legs are joined by concave flat stretchers. Its frontal frieze panels include a circular centerpiece.
A 'work' table, it is not suitable as a dining table given its deep paneled friezes. It is useful today as a console, server or low sideboard in an informal living or dining room; or as a sofa-back table for a pair of oversized lamps or porcelains.
