Spanish tables of the 17th century possess a few characteristics that make them readily identifiable. Walnut was preferred by Spanish woodworkers since the Renaissance and continued to be the dominant wood of early Baroque furniture. Our single plank table with iron stretchers is no exception, as it features a particularly wide single plank top made of walnut.

Another distinct feature of Spanish tables is the use of open and splayed trestle supports, as seen on our table. The legs of each trestle have rectangular joints that are connected to a fretted connector via round dowels. Arising from each connector is a straight iron stretcher that connects to the underside of the top with bolts and washers. There are hinges on the underside that allow the trestle supports to fold inwards, yet another hallmark of Spanish tables. During the Middle Ages, wars were constantly erupting, causing some Spanish nobility to flee their homes quickly. Their tables were designed to collapse easily for transportation purposes.

This single walnut plank Spanish table with iron stretchers was hand-carved in the 1600’s and has a warm and rich patina. The size and lack of carved motifs make it a versatile table. The table can be used as an entry, side table, or small eating table.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with wear commensurate to age and use, including minor nicks, and losses. Light age separations with old repairs and fills. The top has a slight bend, which is normal for wood of this age. At least one of the iron bolts has been replaced.
