Sourced from North Wales, the bold and attractive farmhouse estate made table, having a four plank scrub pine top with rounded edges over a black painted base to imposing well-turned baluster legs and rule lined frieze to a single deep drawer with bronze swing handle, the whole surviving from late nineteenth century provincial Wales.

The table is in very good overall condition; she stands well and is ready to use. The paintwork is nicely time-worn.

Provincial and estate made furniture was made in the provinces or rural districts, typically in the United Kingdom and France and also rural districts of Italy and holds a rural, country or farmhouse flavour, typically less flamboyant than fast changing fine furniture trends initiated in royal courts over past centuries.

A very strong look and just as useful as it was way back when.
