Seller: nicob_27 (99) 100%, Location: London, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 273941266182 This is a gorgeous antique dining table to seat 8, unlike anything I have found on the internet or elsewhere. The base is formed by a cross intersecting a square (photo 2). At the intersections, 4 pillars support an upper cross which can be screwed to the base of the table (underside is photo 12). The 4 pillars are carved in a sort of Gothic style reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts movement. The pillars (photos 3 & 4) have rings decoratively stained darker (almost black) at three levels. Underneath the cross at the base, there are circular recesses to each leg (photo 11) which I imagine may have once housed castors. The top of the table is veneered with a rich patina and interesting grain (photos 5-8). The veneer has a crack along the division of the solid wood beneath it (photos 6-7). It has been like this for the thirty years that I have owned the table and the crack has not widened. Before I owned it, some good quality restoration was done to part of the top, in the form of a diamond of replacement veneer (centre of photo 8). The table comes with a covering of patterned waterproof cloth and a similar sized heat-proof underlay (photo 10). These two have been used to protect it all the time I have owned it. The two parts of the table were originally screwed together but the 12 screws were lost long ago. The holes for the screws can be seen in photos 2 and 12. Dimensions of the base: 69 cm high, diagonal at the base 110 cm, diagonal at the top 117 cm (where it meets the table). Dimension of the top: 141 cm at the widest point and 130 cm at the narrowest. With top mounted on the base, the table is 70 cm high. Payment by PayPal please. Collection from London SW15 (Putney). If arranging courier collection, insurance cover is the buyer's responsibility. Thank you for your interest in this item. Condition: Used, Style: Arts & Crafts
