17th Century Oak Refectory Table, Charles II Period, circa 1675

About

The three plank cleated detachable top is of superb color, figuring and patina. Raised on six baluster supports united by stretchers. The frieze is guilloche carved on all four sides - this demonstrates that this table can be free-standing. Many of these were only carved on three sides. This versatile antique refectory table can be used as a hall, dining or serving table. A number of early oak pieces which we have sold have harmonized very well with modern interiors. Nb. The turning of the supports on this English table indicates a development away from an earlier heavy carved bulbous leg to a simpler baluster leg of the later seventeenth century. However the guilloche carved frieze is a hint of an earlier period. Some historic restoration commensurate with 350 years of use. Lit: Percy Macquoid 'A History of English Furniture Vol. 1, The Age of Oak and The Age of Walnut’, Antique Collector’s Club Ltd, First Publ. Lawrence & Bullen Ltd, 1904, p. 208, fig. 177; 'An Oak Table. Property of the Duke of Devonshire'. Percy Macquoid is notable as the first academic English furniture historian, and was co-author (with Ralph Edwards CBE FSA) of 'Dictionary of English Furniture’ Hamlyn Publ, Fourth Impression 1972. In England these large refectory tables gradually gave way to smaller tables suited to the more intimate domestic arrangements coming into fashion after the Restoration of Charles ll in 1660.
