Until the early 19th Century English oak refectory tables were the only form of dining table. Originally the top was formed by one or two planks of wood set on ornately carved legs. Gateleg and dropleaf tables were popular well into the 18th Century, often with hinged flaps, supported on a gateleg base. The table could be made smaller or larger to suit the occasion and was easily portable.
