A fantastic French table because it is very elegant for a country style so would fit into a more formal room.
It has cabriole legs, and a drawer at each end. The top is a mellow fruitwood colour and the base slightly darker where it has not been exposed to the light. The most unusual feature is the attractive inlay on the side freize. It will easily seat eight people, and has a lovely patina. In excellent condition it is the most expensive table we have sourced because of its special features, but it is one which would fit happily into any room. Price £3,850. length 6ft. 2 and a half inches, height 2.ft .6″, width 2ft. 6″.
