Lot Essay


The present table is distinguished by the massive length and thickness of the plank top. The plank is finished on the long ends and fitted with everted ends. Trestle-leg tables were made to be easily disassembled to facilitate transport. There appear to be two types of demountable, recessed trestle-leg tables. The first type exhibits straight legs, which are set into shoe feet. The second variant has everted feet.
