Now you probably know this, an oak tree has growth rings like every other tree. What you may not know is that the medullary rays that run perpendicular to the grain are a distinguishing feature. In the 17th and 18th-century, the oak was quarter sawn along the line of the medullary; that is how you know this is the real deal, not a forgery. This piece is George I or slightly earlier.
A three panelled oak coffer with a plain planked top, perfect colour, proportion and medullary markings.
