A charming 18th century English elm cricket table having a round top made of burl walnut. The grain of the elm is particularly striking. The triangular bottom tier provides an additional surface. Created in the early 16th century, these tables appeared throughout Great Britain including Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. A ‘cricket table’ refers to an occasional table with a round top set on three angled legs. The three-legged form was more accommodating to the uneven stone floors of English pubs.
