An Exceptionally Rare Mid 18th Century English Elm 
Farmhouse Kitchen Dining Table Having Superbly Figured
Plank Top With Cleated Ends Raised On Square Legs And
Stretchers, Retaining Rich, Untouched, Colour
And Patina Throughout

(It is extremely rare to find English 18th Century variations 
of the traditional farmhouse table still on the market these
days, most that you see are 19th Century and French, and 
it is even rarer to find one in such excellent untouched condition
that can boast such beautiful warm colour and patina. The top 
has cleated ends which is a design used to try and ensure that the
planks do not move too much, which has been a successful theory 
on this particular table as although there is some movement in the
wood on the edge and in the frame the planks within the top itself 
remain firmly together. The size is perfect to seat 10 and the rustic type
elm top very much lends itself to actually being used, as opposed to 
just admired, like so many of the more formal mahogany or rosewood
dining tables which we tend to find. It really is a 
quite spectacular, rarely found table which is perfect for hours of 
entertaining. 

Is it obvious that this table is a personal favourite of mine and that if I 
had a kitchen, or dining room, remotely big enough that I would of 
snapped it up to live with and use for many, many years to come by now!)
