English Barley Twist Rustic Wakes Kitchen Table

You are viewing a wonderful rustic English wakes table with drop leaf. The table has been hand carved from oak and has the distinctive barley twist design legs and stretchers – the ultimate if you are going for the cosey, rustic, farmhouse vibe in your kitchen dining table.

These tables were called wake tables for a reason – they were used to hold coffins at a wake after a funeral in the village. They are obviously easy to store things on due to the drop leaf system so I imagine easy to place coffins on. Despite the slightly morbid description I think it\’s a fascinating insight into the history of these tables.

The drop leaf system means the two oval sides can come down to make this table oblong. Hence it\’s great for different dining occassions. For Every day use in a kitchen it can be stored against the wall and then pulled out for bigger occasions.

The table is offered in great condition – ready for home use right away. Solid and stable, ready to serve you for generations to come making it a great investment. We bought this from a dealer in Tewkesbury. We have pictured this with a set of ladder backs around it we have available so if you are looking for the ultimate rustic dining set look no further.

English Farmhouse Refectory Table & 8 Ladderback Chairs

English Farmhouse Refectory Table & 8 Ladderback Chairs

 

You are viewing an absolutely wonderful English rustic Barley twist table and Windsor chair set. This really is perfect for that farmhouse, rustic look in your kitchen and both chairs and table are hand crafted from the finest oak.

The distinctive barley twist legs are what give this table its name, hand carved as they are and depicting barley twists. Its a very solid and chunky table and would look equally at home in the kitchen as in the dining room.

The oak has a lovely veneer to it and this has just benefitted from a polish at the restorers so it is ready for home use right away. To the side and the top are the hand carved mini-alcove designs all around the edge which also gives the table a refectory style. There is a lot of craftmanship gone into this fine specimen. It is extrememly solid and sturdy and offered in perfect condition,and again, is ready for home use right away. This table will last a lifetime.

The table is offerd with the set of a set of 8 Windsor chairs also made from the finest English oak. The set of 8 consists of two arm chairs and six side chairs. They are a design classic and perhaps – in our humble opinion – one of the best style of chairs ever made. They are flexible in that they look equally at home around a dining table as they do in the kitchen.

For as long as I can remember we’ve had a set in our kitchen and they are perfect for withstanding the rigours of daily family life. They are solid, sturdy, comfortable and look great. They are hand crafted from the finest English oak and considerable work goes into the crafting of these fine pieces. Each seperate piece to each chair is hand carved and turned then assembled. This particular set came back from the restores so they have been repolished and are very sturdy and ready for home use right away.

These chairs are built to last and I don’t think I’m exaggerating by saying they will last forever and hence make a great heirloom to pass down from generation to generation. We are expecting a lot of interest in this unique set so get your bids and shipping quotes in early.
