The Round Table & The King’s Chair
A superb reconstruction in miniature of the “Winchester Round Table” which can still be seen hanging in Winchester Great Hall in England. This magnificent design bears the names of various Knights of Arthur’s court and was probably painted for a tournament in the time of Henry VIII (1491-1547). The original wooden table itself has been dated much earlier to the reign of Edward I (1239-1307) who was a great enthusiast of the Arthurian legends. Accompanying the Round Table is the King’s Chair, a wooden construction on which the King...and only the King...could sit.
