This table has an unusual top with an image of a fishing boat called the Isiah L. Jefferson. It is also marked "Grand Banks Fisherman," which refers to a region southeast of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Sebastian Junger's novel The Perfect Storm, and in Rudyard Kipling's novel Captains Courageous both are about fisherman working in this coastal area.
The table top is some type of stone, or possibly resin, in black with a waxy surface. The image is a highly detailed schematic, with pictures and names of ship parts, and measurements. It looks like it may have come from a sign or plaque at a marina. There are some normal scratch marks on the surface from use. The table itself measures 28" wide, 20" deep, and 16" tall.
We are not sure about the age or history of the table, nor could we find any information on the vessel portrayed on its surface. But be it real or fictonal, this table makes for an intriguing piece of nautical inspired furniture.
