An antique refectory table is an elongated table that draws its name from the original long tables used by monks in monasteries during Medieval Times. The trestle legs of these tables are joined with a stretcher for stability.

Overall this table is in very good condition. As a whole, this table maintains a rustic and distressed look. Over the years, cosmetic age separations developed in the top and base. Please note, these separations are cosmetic only and do not affect the integrity of the table. These, combined with oak’s normal knots and the passage of time have left a stunning piece of furniture. Finally, it can be waxed with furniture paste wax intermittently to help keep the wood looking good. Originally the table was made in England sometime around the year 1900.
Perhaps most importantly, this antique refectory table is very sturdy. It will stand up to the rigors of everyday use while the distressed appearance means any minor dings inflicted to it will only add to its character!
