Gate Leg Table

Gate Leg Table: a table with hinged legs that swing out from the frame to support the drop leaves that make the surface of the table larger.
Found this in a furniture store that sells for others at a commission. It is an antique from a woman’s home who had it for 75 years.
The theme is “Fairy’s and Peonies”, the largest burn for me to date. Challenging just laying it out and transferring the design, educational! Took about 6 months to complete and am still enjoying it in my home. For the right price I will part with it but it would be a great loss. Money comes and goes but art is irreplaceable.
