Single Pedestal Dining Table
While on our hunts for wonderful antique furniture in England sometimes we find great pieces of yew wood furniture like this single pedestal dining table. I love yew wood which has a mellow color and wispy grain that is often speckled with tiny knots or “birds eyes”. Yew is a wood native to England and was the wood originally used to make the English long bow back in the Medieval era. It is also used to make beautiful musical instruments. We have dated this table to about 1960 and of English origin. The maker complemented the yew wood top by adding a mahogany cross banded border. This border helps define the oval shape of the single pedestal dining table.
The pedestal is a turned pedestal with four splay legs that end in brass claw foot casters.
We have rated the condition of this extending dining table as good. It is sturdy and strong and ready for everyday use. The top does have some minor scratches that are consistent with a piece of this age. These are hard to see except in certain lights. There is also one small repair to the yew wood top which we have photographed. The repair blends in well with the yew wood and it is not noticeable unless you are looking for it. Being in such good condition you could use this single pedestal dining table as a breakfast room or kitchen table, or even a small office conference table. It was well made and will serve your family for many years.
