Antique French Carved Oak Square Dining Table Breton Brittany Game Library Table
Antique French Carved Oak Square Dining Table Breton Brittany Game Library Table.
Direct from the Brittany region of France, a highly carved dining table, with distinctive Breton style and design.
The large, almost square top has a carved beveled edge above the wide, hand carved apron that features Breton carvings on all sides.
Substantial turned and carved baluster legs have lower carved blocks, joined by massive, curved “spindle” railing, surmounted with a center finial. This elaborate spindling provides a very elegant silhouette and sets this table apart from others!
Note: This spindle railing is indicative of the Brittany region, which was heavily dependent on fishing and maritime, and frequently included this “ship’s wheel” spindling in their furniture.
Traditionally antique furniture from this region had a very dark finish and was frequently carved from oak or chestnut wood.
Heavy and solid; underneath is the original extension slides and drop-down legs to support the table with leaves (not included). circa1910.
