More information

Charles I joined oak table, initialed and dated IPTF 1636 to the upper section of one end. The four baluster turned legs joined by plain lower stretcher rails and moulded frieze rails, with six original baluster turned spindles set within the frame. There would have been another twenty spindles within the framework and these look to have been removed very early in the tables life almost certainly within the first few years looking at the wear and surface. There is no evidence of a spindle door which is possibly the reason for the removal of them, this is possibly a unique example as no other tables of this form can be found. I would think the idea would be to use the table as a dog cage. The original cleated planked top overhangs more than a normal table to compensate for the spindles when sat at the piece. Old repairs to the feet.

Rare and unique
