19th Large Historically Important Refectory Table

An extraordinary Monumental 19th century oak refectory table of significant historically importance. Of extremely large proportions raised on four turned legs, sat on squat bun feet - united by stretchers.
The tabletop displaying a two-part section planked top with a large drawer in the apron to one end of the table. This table features a rich, warm patination and grain throughout.

This table demonstrates a significant depth which is highly unusual making a fabulous statement in any room. An extremely rare find with such a strong provenance, making for an excellent talking point when sat around!

This table was originally situated the History of Science Museum - Oxford University, 'The Ashmolean'. The table was housed in the main Basement Gallery, which was used to display chemical, physical and medical items - along with Einstein’s blackboard and Marconi's wireless collection.

Pappilon is a Mother and Daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old.  Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of ideas that makes us love what we do.

We feel that antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style.

We source pre-loved and sometimes tired pieces of furniture and items from many locations around the UK and in and around Europe. We lovingly restore each piece and sympathetically bring it back to life either by injecting it into the 21st century or restoring it back to its original state.
