A Mid-19thC Painted Pine Cricket Table c.1850-70

The charmingly decorative black painted pine cricket table having well-turned legs displaying the original black crusty painted finish with under-apron, with a rustic two plank top, the whole surviving from the third quarter of nineteenth century England.

In good overall order, the table simply shows light wear to the paintwork as photographed. The top has two slivers missing from short grain on both sides which may have been done to allow it to be placed alongside a wall, with paint flecks and surface marks as photographed. There is no damage to speak of and it can be used daily.

Originating from a farmhouse in Cheshire, this table displays all of the things we love about country furniture and cricket tables themselves. ‘The true origin of the term is somewhat less fanciful, although its use may be comparatively modern; it is simply derived from an old term for stools. Since the archetypal stool, or “cricket”, has a circular top and three legs, a table of essentially the same form only larger…’; English Country Furniture 1500 – 1900 by David Knell. Many of these tables would have originally stood on slate or flagstone floors with the three legs allowing the table to rest with stability on uneven surfaces.

Still as useful today as it was then, a delightful piece of decorative country furniture.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
