An enterprising person a long time ago decided not to hide the fact he was creating an extension table by incorporating shutter style leaves and telescoping support frame. The result is a unique adaptation of a French cherry drop leaf table with a rich, warm patina that makes this table one of kind. There are three leaves in total: two leaves measure 17.5" and one is 17.75".
French Dining Table
United Kingdom. Circa 19th century.
English Regency pollard oak centre table with oak crossbanding. Table features large beaded edge over apron with smaller beaded edge. Concave, four-sided column resting upon concave, four-legged platform base, ending with ebonized carved claw feet with casters. Inverted collar of small and large beaded rings complete the transition from column to base. Excellent example of old pollard oak. Wonderful patina and color.
