An 18th century oak refectory table. A four planked cleated top with a wonderful rich patina, raised on turned legs with an H shaped stretcher below. In solid and sturdy condition, with areas of now treated historic worm on the legs and stretcher, as shown in the photos, and reflected in the price. It would make a very nice desk, hall or kitchen table.
Date: 18th century
The average piece of furniture generates approximately 47kg of carbon dioxide equivalents – roughly the same as burning 5.3 gallons of petrol. Buying this item second-hand versus a newly made equivalent recovers the energy used to make it, rather than generating further emissions and using new materials.
