The Weasley family had a coffee table in the living room of their home, The Burrow, in Ottery St Catchpole, England. It was made in 1976 and inlaid with tiles hand-painted with a brown geometric design by Ox-Art.
Behind the scenes
- The coffee table featured in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is one of a line of tile-inlaid tables (which included dining tables, coffee tables, and end tables) produced by the Danish furniture company Trioh in the 1970s. The tiles on this line of tables were typically signed "Ox-Art" and dated with the year of manufacture.
- The coffee table was acquired by a collector in Pembrokeshire soon after its use in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. This person later sold the table to Brita Rogers, who in turn offered it for sale at an antiques fair in Carmarthen, Wales in 2015.
