Amongst the items we sourced this week was a very quirky piece. It’s a rustic Victorian pine kitchen table… with a difference – it measures a mere 24 inches long & 8 inches high!
It’s a lovely period piece dating from the 19th century, beautifully made with turned legs and jointing – the wood having a wonderful, aged patina.
We think it could possibly be an apprentice piece – the young craftsman displaying his skills before tackling a full-scale piece. We’ve seen miniature cabinets & chests before, but never a table.
It’s lovely just to look at… but we’ve been trying to think of possible uses. A children’s or dolls’ tea party springs to mind. It would look great with one of those vintage miniature tea sets.
It’s the perfect size for a breakfast tray…
…or tea ceremony.
It could also function as a storage or display surface.
