Pitch Pine Folding Yacht Table
Like the mahogany ships table we have also listed for sale today we have owned and used this table ourselves for close on 30 years but a new design scheme forces us to reluctantly offer for rehome. Whilst its origins are unknown it was purchased by us in the port town of Falmouth, Cornwall back in c.1990. It probably originally served on a yacht or launch where space below decks was at a premium. Our picture shows the top in the extended position and this gives a surface area of 32" x23.5" (82 cm x 60 cm); when the top leaves are closed the top dimensions reduce to a modest 32" x 11.75" (82 cm x 30 cm). It stands 24.75" high (60 cm) in the opened position.
Manufactured from a varnished pitch pine in sound condition but with marks and scuffs commensurate with use and the nautical origins are endorsed by six solid brass hinges. Sometimes on these table the legs also fold in to aid storage when not in use; this clearly was the case with this one but the legs were in the locked position when we purchased and we have left it as such although the original hinge mechanism is still in place but now non-functioning. We have found it a fine and practical piece of nautical furniture to own and whilst for sale a collectable we see no reason, if you should require a table for use on your classic boat, why it should not again go back to sea.
