A very good looking and well made refectory or hall table, it has a triple plank top with cleated ends, moulded frieze above turned and square section legs joined by peripheral stretchers. The table came from the Collection of Plaish Hall, Church Stretton, Shropshire which was the Property of Mrs Roy Merley and Family.
Plaish Hall is a stunning Grade I listed Tudor house, standing in beautiful gardens and grounds and surrounded by the unspoilt countryside of South Shropshire. It is believed to be the first brick built house in Shropshire in the 1580s, (although parts of an earlier stone house were incorporated), at a time when the great majority of buildings in the parish of Cardington were timber framed.Of special note are the chimneys of Plaish Hall which are thought to have been based on those at Hampton Court, they are considered to be the finest in the West Midlands. From the early 1980s and over a period of 35 years Plaish Hall was initially meticulously restored and then maintained, its glorious Tudor style gardens were also reinstated. In his notes on the History of the Church and Parish of Cardington, G B H Bishop, appointed Vicar of Cardington in 1914, noted that Cardington is surrounded by hills. The climate is bracing, and the temperature lower both in summer and winter than in less elevated districts. Plaish Hall sits close to a number of other magnificent Grade I listed late Tudor and early Stuart houses, as well as Wenlock Edge, the location for A E Housmans A Shropshire Lad / On Wenlock Edge, which he completed in 1896. In terms of the condition the table is old, I cant see any repairs however the top was separated from the base so Ive had it secured in place, its also been fully worm treated, cleaned waxed and polished. The table has numerous signs of age to include slight warping to the top, the base is uneven, the stretches have worn down slightly from centurys of use, all of these signs of use are consummate with a piece thats nearly 400 years old, simply put if they didnt have them then the table wouldnt be this old it would be a reproduction. Depth:- 83cm one end 84cm the other end. Under leg height:- 74cm. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
