Early oak in The Pedestal sale

Early oak and country furniture is included as a designated section for the first time in The Pedestal’s auction, Fine Furniture & Objects including Early Oak and Carpets, at Moor Park Mansion in Hertfordshire next week.

The Pedestal team commented, “Whether it is the depth of colour and centuries of patination on a piece from the 17th century or the versatility of oak when it comes to blending into a more contemporary styled interiors, this remains a popular area of collecting for buyers.”

Consignments for the sale include various furniture, from coffers and chests to refectory tables. We’ve picked out five lots that caught our eye from the auction due to take place on November 21.
