Wonderfully old George II, Queen Anne drop leaf dining table found at a very nice North Carolina estate but could possibly be English, dating back to C.1750.
This is an amazing find. It is constructed of solid walnut and stands on 4 circular tapered legs ending in pad feet.
Hand dovetailed construction with wooden joints on the legs and shaped apron on each end.
This piece has developed a wonderful aged patina with the character that comes over several centuries of use. It is extremely heavy and in very solid, functional condition.
There are 2 unusual holes in the apron on each end, just below the table top, which I do not know how or why they are there. This is shown in the pictures but they are only really noticeable if you look under the table.
It's length and height make it a good candidate for a sofa or hall table which can be used for extra dining space when needed.
It has marks and wear through out the piece, mainly to one side of the top which is shown in the pictures and only adds to it's character and charm. There is also some minor warping of the boards which is a normal age appropriate flaw.
A versatile, unique piece of history and a great addition to any Colonial home.
