Table, Allmoge, 18th Century
This is a Table.
Allmoge is the Swedish word referring to furniture and objects belonging to and made by country or rural folk. This table's simple, rough-hewn form would have been originally designed as a corner worktable and sited in the main living room of the farmhouse. Today such pieces are revered as folk art and appreciated for their simplicity and link with their agrarian past.
