You'll Be Tabled At Miguel Meirelle Antiques

A late 19th century French solid oak refectory table

A large and wide, late 19th century French Louis XV style carved solid oak and oak parquetry extending dining table, the serpentine top above the well-carved cabriole legs and the shaped rails. In the photo the table is seen closed, with its the two extension leaves stored under the top. Excellent colour and patina.

A late 19th century French oak refectory table of simple design and good size, standing on square section legs joined by an ‘H’ stretcher. Note the early design with no side rails, and plenty of leg-room. Instead of side rails there is under the top a central beam that runs the length of the table. Provenance: The refectory of a convent in Normandy.

A classic French cut crystal plafonnière ceiling light of good, shallow proportions. Each string of crystal beads in diminishing sizes, the rim decorated with rectangular crystals, the tip decorated with a cut crystal pommel.
A beautifully faded mid-19th century French Provincial Louis XV style, carved two-door pine Armoire. Typical of the South East of France, this armoire features a fine 'chapeau de gendarme" pediment, and a quirky central (upright) mouding
