English Scrubbed Pine Tenon Mortised Antique Farm Table, 19th Century
SCRUBBED PINE TENON MORTISED WORK TABLE
Probably English c. Mid 19th Century
Item # 605EPW14
A well worn working table probably from the second quarter of the nineteenth century, this table has a lovely scrubbed pine top with remnants of a much earlier teal green paint visible along the edges and in recesses. An early crusty brown paint covers the legs, apron and the battens affixing the table top to the frame of the table. The construction is clean and pure, the pinned tenon mortise joints having survived with great strength despite the distressing of surfaces - the table is incredibly sturdy. The large legs are particularly attracative for their faceted shaping over the turned tapered footing on each, these locked permanently in place with an H-form stretcher that tenons into each leg, the medial stretcher through-tenoned with a single pin locking it in place. A gorgeous piece for a breakfast area, as a work table in the kitchen or as a minimalist desk in an office, this beautifully worn piece is as nostalgic as it is charming.
