The plank top in three sections faced with a cleated edge. The frieze with a single drawer with replaced knobs. Standing on baluster and ball turned legs, joined by square stretchers, on original toes. Good original colour and patina. English, third quarter of the 17th century.
Formerly part of the furnishings of the Preston Trust Homes which were founded as charitable alms houses on the bequest of Lady Herbert of Chirbury and Lord Torrington who died in 1716. They were children of Francis, 1st Earl of Bradford and his wife Lady Diana Russell, daughter of the 4th Earl of Bradford. Completed in about 1725 and at the centre of the alms houses is the Hall where these tables were in situ. The hall has giant pilasters and two, large arched windows with Gibbs surrounds and a grand doorway with a Gibbs surround and a pediment over.
