Farmhouse Table

Photos 30.03.13 007

Antique baltic pine farmhouse table with drawer for cutlery or napery. Very strong frame and top, would suit four to six people. Probably made around 1900, the actual colour is a little darker than it appears in this photo $395. The top is 140 cms x 85 cms, and the height is the standard 76 cms. It is our experiece that most tables are 76 cms (30 inches) high and similarly most chairs are 46 cms (18 inches) high. Often when a table is 4 or 5 cms too short inspection under the leg will show evidence that a castor or wheel has been removed. tell tale signs are a drilled central hole of about 5mm (for a pin),or 3 or four smaller holes that would show where the castor plate was screwed. Should you wish to bring the table up to the correct height fitting the wheels is often a fairly straightforward job. For many years now Graeme Brown,s in Toorak have had an extensive range of good quality reproduction castors. After all that we should note that this is a table that was never fitted with castors,
