Learn about Gateleg Table

A dropside table with deep flaps, of which one or more legs is hinged, able to be opened to support the flap when raised. Numbers of legs varied from eight to twelve. Most dining tables of the Jacobean and early Georgian periods were round oak gateleg tables, usually with barley-sugar twist or baluster turnings. Some card tables and most Sutherland tables work on the gateleg principle. In the early 20th century the gateleg table again become popular as a small dining table, in a revived Jacobean style. The gateleg revivals generally have barley twist turned legs and egg-shaped oval tops. They are also usually finished in a dark coloured polish and have brass or steel butt hinges.
