Klein #Hands_Employed_ArightGate-Leg Table. Oak. English: 17th Century. Drawn from the original in the Bethnal Green Museum, Cambridge Heath Road, London, E.2. This interesting piece is in oak throughout, and is a good example of a design which still remains popular after three centuries. It would be as useful to-day as when it was made. There is a drawer at one end which fits between the shaped spandrel rail and the top, and the other end is similarly shaped and carved though it does not open as a drawer. The top and its leaves are modern replacements; the originals may have had square edges or they may have moulded. It will be noticed that the scrolled feet were originally built out, but the applied pieces have long since been knocked off. — from “The Woodworker: The Charles H.
