AN OAK TWO DRAWER TABLE WITH ASH TOP, WELSH, LATE 18TH EARLY 19TH CENTURY
with a cleated three plank top, two drawers and square tapering legs joined by an H-shaped stretcher -- 65in. (166cm.) long, 31in. (79cm.) high, 29½in. (75cm.) deep
Such farmhouse tables are associated with Wales and the Welsh borders. Features indicative of this origin are the tapered leg, the high set stretchers and the multiple pegging on the top planks; usually, though, the top would be of sycamore and the fact that the cleats are cut into on the planks may indicate that the top was longer and therefore may not have always been with this base.
