Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire (Accredited Museum)
An oak centre table, in 17th century style, possibly using some 17th century timber, the rectangular top above friezes with moulded lower edge. The legs columnar and terminating in block feet united by peripheral stretchers.
By descent until, following the death of Edward William Spencer Cavendish, 10th Duke of Devonshire (1895 - 1950), Hardwick Hall and its contents were accepted by HM Treasury in part payment of death duties and transferred to the National Trust, in 1959.
