One of the first examples of the ingenious French draw leaf design, this superb table was rendered from dense, old-growth French white oak to last for centuries! Boldly turned barley twist legs and stretchers are joined with pegged mortise & tenons, all by hand, but the cornerposts steal the show with full relief cherubs peering out in two directions at the top of each corner. Two spacious leaves draw out in an instant to accommodate extra guests, then just as easily tuck back in to reclaim floor space. Ingenious and elegant!
Circa 1860s.
