At nearly seven feet long, this English pine 2 drawer table has a nice light finish.   The plank top is finished with bread board ends and joined to the base with bracket construction.  Both drawers are spacious and glide well, the hardware is brass and has been replaced at some point in time.  Please note, there is wear on the base of the legs, as show in the photos, and consistent with its age.  The table is sturdy and sits level on its four feet.  We date this table to 1890 and are are smitten with its size and turned post legs.

More on Victorian Pine Furniture:

The Victorian Era is commonly known as the period between 1837-1901, and named rightly so after the Queen herself.

English Pine pieces during this period (as well as Georgian Period) are found to have tight graining exemplifying the slow growth pine trees they were crafted from.  Old growth pine has been found to be quite hard (compared to newer growth pine found in continental pieces).  Patina varies on Pine based on its regional origin.  While most continental pine pieces are often found to have wide graining and turn yellow after being stripped, English Pine will boast a rich warm color, leaning more base neutral. 

Pine furniture during the Victorian Era was deemed to be the only affordable option for the lower class.  It was quite common for the English to paint their Pine to mimic richer wood colors commonly found in mahogany and walnut pieces showcased by the upper class.  It wasn’t until several decades ago the idea came around to strip Victorian pine back and leave it in its natural state.  Exposing the simplistic look of times past. 

Dovetail joints were hand cut until the mid 1880s when the industrial revolution in England took place.  Furniture after that period began to see the introduction of machine cut dovetail joints.  Visually, hand cut dovetails have individual, unique shapes (often over cuts at the ends) and a cabinet makers straight edge line indicating the edge of the joints.  We buy almost exclusively furniture with hand cut dovetail joints, showcasing the craftsmanship that went into each piece all those years ago.
