This handsome gateleg dining table is also known as an English wake table with drop leaves. Notice the dark patina of the oak, aged and naturally distressed over generations of use and lovely turned legs. The large oval shaped top has 2 drop leaves, so when closed it serves as a 23" deep console table. Notice that someone added metal "handle" underneath to make raising and lowing the oak leaves easier. Please examine the close up photos to appreciate the richness of the wood; the old scratches, nicks and marks mix with the wood grain adding depth of character. When fully opened at 60" deep, the attractive turned gate legs allow 8-10 guests to sit comfortably. This large gateleg wake table has been restored, is strong/stable and ready for use.
