A fine, late-17th century, oak, cricket table
The circular top is made from four sections and has a wonderful grain and lustrous, mellow colour. The plain frieze is, unusually, fitted with a drawer. Standing on delicately, turned bobbin legs joined by square stretchers. Excellent, lustrous colour and patina. English, fourth quarter of the 17th century.
It is rare to find cricket tables of this period as they are commonly mid-18th century pieces. This is a particularly fine example with a beautiful grain and lustrous surface on the top, and the delicate use of the bobbin turning generally associated with the mid-17th century. These tables were generally used as occasional tables to hold a light source, cup or platter beside a chair or in the corner of a room.
