    The oval twin-flap drop leaves resting on square moulded legs, four inner gate legs. One of the two end legs has been replaced. Of exceptional original colour. The narrow shape when the flaps are down, allows it to be conveniently placed against a wall, out of the way, maybe in a hall or dining-room. The term hunt table originated from their use for hunt meets, when they were carried outside to hold the drink. They are otherwise known as wake or coffin tables, their narrow shape being ideally suited to holding a coffin prior to burial. This rare piece is one of the longest Wake tables we have seen at 102” (259cm). Understood to have once belonged to the Bishop of Carlisle.

     
    This table can be sold with 10 chairs of the same period and leg. This table can seat up to 12 people depending on the size of the chair.
     
    Circa 1750''s
