Offering a gorgeous antique New England Hepplewhite drop-leaf farmhouse table with wood peg joinery. Circa 1800-1820. The farmhouse table originated from the Deerfield area or surrounding valley in Western Massachusetts. It’s very solidly made, with nice period handcrafted details in the construction. The Hepplewhite farmhouse table is made of pine. Both leaves are held by a pivoted cutout on two sides, so one leaf can be dropped and one left up. Four adults can be seated at this table and it’s exceptionally sturdy for everyday use, given its age. The history is present in a wonderful worn patina to the surfaces and joinery. There are plenty of scratches and a very old dark spot left behind from a candle holder. It has a lovely simple rustic feel.
The simplicity of an antique country Hepplewhite table lends itself well to both traditional settings and more contemporary spaces alike. Perfect for a period home, or modern city loft with limited dining space. The drop leaf compact style makes it perfect for a sideboard table too. Click here for more details.
