Draw-leaf table, Anonymous, c. 1600 - c. 1625

wood (plant material), h 84cm × l 170cm × w 83.5cm. More details

The two leaves under the tabletop can be pulled out, hence the name ‘draw-leaf table’. When these withdrawing leaves are fully extended, the top drops down between them. The table’s length is thus doubled. Draw-leaf tables were fixtures in the homes of affluent citizens during the 17th century. This is an exceptionally luxurious example, with carving on the baluster legs.
