Rococo table kit - Rokokoopöydän rakennussarja

I have been assembling this rococo table kit, which my friend gave me as a Christmas gift. It is so nice! The kit is made by Kotte Toys and it has been made according to the model of a table from the mid 1700s. The description says that the original table was not a rustic table, but it may have been in a castle or manor or possibly on a wealthy farm. On the table tops there were metal fittings that made it possible to join multiple tables for a feast. 
Olen kasannut tätä rokokoopöytää, jonka sain ystävältäni joululahjaksi. Se on todella kiva! Rakennussarjan on tehnyt Kotte Toys ja se on tehty 1700-luvulta peräisin olevan pöydän mallin mukaan. Kuvauksen mukaan alkuperäinen pöytä ei ollut maalaispöytä, vaan se on saattanut olla linnassa tai kartanossa taikka varakkaalla maatilalla. Pöytälevyissä oli metalliosat joiden avulla saatiin kiinnitettyä monta pöytää yhteen juhlia varten.
