This stunning 17th Century table with hand carved drawer fronts and back apron, originates in the Basque country, the area bordering France and Spain. It is mortise and tenon construction with large hand forged steel nails on the table top. The thick slab top has a few very old replaced wood pieces, but after years of use and waxing, it all looks very natural and has a smooth surface. This noble table would be a wonderful statement piece in an entry hall, as a desk or any space where it can be properly admired and used. One of the most majestic antiques we have had in our shop!
