Did you know that in Victorian times people were very depressed and not only was it considered shameful to see a woman\'s ankle, but even to see a table leg was considered undignified and impolite!Therefore, it is also required that the legs of the table be covered and invisible;After all, they are legs!So what is the history of the table, especially the table, usually the focus of our dining room furniture?It makes sense to get to know, especially if you\'re interested in buying antique tables.In the 16 th century, the table (derived from the Latin word tabula, meaning a board, a board, or a tablet) really became its own table, the hard table and other kinds of tables have been around for a long time.In ancient times, tables were made of different materials and different designs: for example, Egyptians used wood or stones, and their tables were shaped like bases, while Assyrians used metal.Marble was also known to other ancient civilizations.As the tables evolved, their functions became more diverse, and the table had its origins in the Middle Ages.The earliest table is considered a trestle that can be opened when it is not used.In the Middle Ages, the concept of eating together at the table came into being.In the Renaissance, in Spain and Italy, the rectangular table was designed to be supported by the end of the stretcher;They often have an arcade in the center consisting of columns.A well-known and remarkable example of the various tables produced during the Renaissance is the marble-inlaid falneese table, which is considered to be a credit to Vignola.There are also tables of the Elizabethan era, which are characterized by rounding.The Elizabethan table also includes the draw table, the predecessor of the extended table.Later, the concept of the door-leg table also appeared and became popular;These tables have flaps that can be folded when not in use.There are several ways to tell the real antique table so you can be sure that what you are buying is not an imitation that is passed on as an original antique.For example, if a table is old and has been in use for many years, there will obviously be uneven wear on the legs, and from years of use, the edges and corners of the table should be round and smooth, not angular.If the legs of the table are replaced at any time, then this will reduce the value of the table, so the wear of the legs is a good indicator of your judgment.Any rod or pin on the surface of the table should stand out from the surface of the real antique table, because the old wood will shrink over time, making this Rod and pin (also known as the pin) stand out from the slightly shrinking Wood.
