An extraordinary Monumental 19th century oak refectory table of significant historically importance. Of extremely large proportions raised on four turned legs, sat on squat bun feet - united by stretchers.  

The tabletop displaying a two-part section planked top with a large drawer in the apron to one end of the table. This table features a rich, warm patination and grain throughout.  


This table demonstrates a significant depth which is highly unusual making a fabulous statement in any room. An extremely rare find with such a strong provenance, making for an excellent talking point when sat around!
