MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE

ICONIC AUSSIE ANTIQUE
KITCHEN TABLE












These fabulous iconic pieces of
Australian domestic history are
getting harder and harder to get.
Once upon a time they popped up
regularly - sometimes they are
cedar and pine or all cedar or
all pine or like this one a combination
of Australian timbers ie cedar,
kauri pine and blackwood.
The legs are blackwood, the top is
kauri and the side rails are cedar.

They were often painted originally
and that's why the cabinet makers
weren't too concerned about the
timbers they used.
You virtually never see an original
painted table now - they were almost
all stripped back long ago to reveal
the beautiful natural timber underneath.

These were kitchen tables. Sat in the
middle of an old kitchen and used for
everything from preparing food to eating
breakfast at, sewing, homework and probably
the baby change table as well.
The heart of the home and where all the
most important daily events took place.
If it could only speak.

We don't get them often now as is the case
with most things that were fairly plentiful
when I started dealing 30 years ago but
now itís all getting very hard to find.
This dining table is particularly handsome
as well, measuring 154cm long, 90cm wide
and 73.5cm high and is in beautiful
used antique condition.

SORRY, I'VE SOLD!
