This elegant table features many fine details that the master Swedish craftsman of the late 18th and into the 19th century Ephraim Ståhl is known for. Among them, flower carvings on the apron and elegant legs finishing in carved hoof feet. It was not uncommon in 19th century Sweden that a prominent individual would see furniture made from a master craftsman while visiting a nobleman’s house, then to bring a sketch to a local craftsman and commission a piece to be made. Also craftsmen, Sthål included, would imitate the details of others. The top itself is smooth and makes a perfect surface for dining or everyday tasks. This table is a perfect match for the barrel back armchairs, ref. 7-8127, and it is our belief that they were commissioned and made at the same workshop.
