Amazing huge old timber table and matching benches. Originally came from a barn in France via an antiques shop in Sussex. This is a very reluctant sale. As my husband thinks its too large for our kitchen and I think its perfect having literally spent years searching for a set like this! Unfortunately he's won and it is now being stored in the barn!
The table is just under 3m long and. Has a drawer at one end and has two long matching benches which all originally came with it. Makes a really dramatic statement in an old or contemporary interior.
It is very old and rustic and does have lots of marks and undulations in the timber as one would expect and some long. Cracks mainly on the top surface.
I used to have a runner on the top so this never bothered me. To me this was very much part of its character and history and I loved the contrast of old and new textures in the kitchen. I've added some more photos to try and show these but can send more as required.
I did have an antique furniture restorer come and look at it when I was considering making it smaller (to appease my husband). It said people often have them reduced and reassembled to modernise them. He also mentioned you can inlay main cracks with old timber to match. As we were still considering this we have not re-glued joints with any movement so If anyone wanted to alter it, it would still be possible. This table and benches would make a stunning centerpiece for Christmas and beyond.
It's even big enough for everyone to socially distance over Christmas dinner! I have included approximate measurements of 3m x 0.8 but will need to double check these.
