A late 17th century Spanish baroque period walnut table. Given its shallow depth 'Pie de Puente', which makes it quite practical in narrow spaces, in all probability this table probably served as a bargueno table or 'pie de puente' as they were known. A bargueno, for those unfamiliar, is a portable wooden desk with a drop front and sturdy iron handles that originated in Renaissance Spain. These traveling desks required a support which came in two forms, a 'taquillon' (enclosed base) or, like the table offered here, a 'pie de puente', an open based trestle table.
This elegant 'pie de puente' features a thick single timber walnut top, raised on turned legs connected by a perimeter stretcher. The finish is a rich shade of carob brown with a warm, mellow time honored patina.
Dimensions: 44 inches long x 26.75 inches deep x 29.5 inches high.
