Wooden table

sold + tax

This type of table was built for the German railways around the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. They were used as office desks and workbenches in railway workshops. Moreover, they were sometimes fitted with switches and used as switchboards to control for example lighting systems – which was the case with this particular example. This accounts for the large number of holes in the hardwood tabletop, which we have sealed up using hardwood dowelling. The tabletop has been sanded smooth and sealed with hard oil. The legs of the table are made out of cast iron, polished and finished with transparent varnish. Note that this combination of a wooden tabletop and metal legs is highly unusual.
