Rancho Platform

Table. Description: Spanish ranch table; weathered bleached oak; one drawer; cross bars on legs. History: from Santa Barbara Object: Table made of bleached oak with drawer for storage. This table is typical of the hand-hewn furniture made in California. As iron nails were in short supply, they were rarely used in furniture construction. The components of this table are joined by wooden pegs and carefully carved mortise-and-tenon joints. History: This table was used at Rancho Santa Barbara prior to 1850. The rancho was located on Santa Rosa Island, one of four islands known collectively as the Santa Barbara Islands, located 25 to 30 miles off the coast from Point Conception to Port Hueneme of Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Santa Rosa Island was granted as a rancho to the Carrillo family in 1843, and today is a privately owned cattle ranch. Museum Purchase
