(December 8, 2015)  These simple tables, used for all manner of service & seating, are the very earliest of domestic design. Generally undateable, they are humble yet undeniably beautiful - always functional, if rough and ready.

A rustic burr-elm table, probably England early 19th century.

Of curious multi-leg construction in Pine (Pinus Sylvestris) and Burr Walnut (Juglans Regia). The slab top supported by a central thick branch with hammered decoration, this with four radiating pine legs pinned to the central column.
