Louis XV dining table known as a cherry wood farm table, 19th century.
Large dining table in solid cherry, rectangular in shape in solid cherry, it rests on 4 curved legs giving it a Louis XV style, the belt opens at the end of the table by a long drawer which is generally used to store cutlery and at the other end by a titrating tablet which is traditionally used to enlarge the table or to do the dishes there or to cut the bread, these zippers are also often called "bread zipper", we note that the color of the zipper is darker than the rest of the furniture, this completely natural appearance is due to the tannin of the wood which has risen to the surface, indicating that it has served well and that water has often been in contact with it.
The top is made up of 4 boards assembled together with tongue grooves and held at the end by sheets, the assembly is pegged to the top.
The drawer has a cherry wood front with a molded turned wood pull button, the sides, bottom and back are in poplar, nail mounting, there is a wood graft on the front.
The entire piece of furniture is in good condition, the structure is solid, the wood has a very nice patina with marks of use and a waxed finish which gives it a beautiful authenticity and patina.
This table is a regional work from the first half of the 19th century made in a Louis XV style still very fashionable in the provinces.
