This oak gate leg table was made in England sometime around 1920. Gate leg tables are quite flexible in their use and fit a wide range of needs. Use then with one leaf open, both, or neither. This flexibility allows a table to be stored to the side and pulled out as a card, or game table, as needed.
Classic gate leg table design
English cabinetmakers first began making gate leg tables in the Jacobean period, a fruitful time of innovation in English cabinetry. A type of drop leaf table, gate leg tables offer the beautiful qualities of all similar pieces–a surface area that can expand or retract, doubling in size or more, in just a few seconds. This particular table expands from 18.75″ wide to 53.25″ in width with a depth of 32.5″.
Oak wood is a fine wood choice. Strong, durable, and featuring a nice tight and straight grain this wood makes a very good choice for furniture.
This oak table in overall very good condition. The top appears to have been refinished at some point and remains in excellent condition. The top has a unique texture, with areas of slight depressions that give the wood a charming character not found in a perfectly smooth top. Minor wear exists on the legs and feet consistent with age. All working parts move flawlessly. Finally, the area where two boards join on one of the leafs has a very slight age separation to it. This is purely cosmetic.
