One can sit and eat or write and ponder over this Baroque oak table with handsome baluster shaped legs. The solid, aged oak top barely reveals its 200 years of use, yet bursts with character that is only developed over time. It can easily sit 8 people as a dining table, the apron does not interfere and the trestle was designed for chairs to pull into it. It can also be used as a large writing desk or craft table, what ever your need happens to be. The table is strong, level, and ready to be used daily.
