French Oak Trestle Style Dining Table with Original PatinaAntique Item
French Antique Trestle Farm Table from the Provence. Old Plank has been specializing in antique French farm tables and antique French trestle dining tables and this antique French table seems to straddle the line, between trestle and farm table. Whenever something truly special arrives from Europe and sadly it’s a rarity these days we all get overly excited. This latest French farm table arrival really got our juices flowing. The oak French table top is over 3” thick and although very difficult to place an exact date on a trestle style French farm table, at a minimum we believe the farm table is over 200-years old. Now, the most unusual part of this story, there are two of these antique French farm tables, so we’re thinking an old French monastery probably from the late 1700’s? When the antique French dining tables arrived and there are many that will be listed on 1stdibs in short order, we immediately ran them through the workshop to check for structural integrity, after which we send the antique tables into our Old Plank finishing department for a careful evaluation. The decision was easy for this French dining table, just wash the table and let the 200-year-old wood speak for itself, for you can’t fake this kid of patination.
