Description

This is a high quality English extending Dining Table made from hardwood, in the period of George III, during the late 18th century, circa 1785.
This table will seat 10 people on account of its large width of over 54 inches plus the semi circular ends.
It has two D-ends ( semi circular) each having four legs, the two outer ones being fixed and fluted and the two inside ones being gated, swinging out to support the leaves when required. There are two additional leaves. The tops and legs are solid hardwood, with all the legs being square tapered, ending in carved spade feet, with what look to be the original brass castors.
The edges to the table top are horizontally reeded and the curved side under-frames are veneered.
This is a very versatile dining table. The D-ends can be used separately as pier tables or joined together to form a circular table. The table can be easily extended, using either one or both leaves as required.
When fully extended with the two leaves inserted the piece forms a large elegant dining table, capable of seating ten people, the sections clipping together with six brass clips.
The color and patina of this table is superb, having a rich patina, only possible with over 200 years of repeated polishing.
For similar 18th C. Extending Dining Tables see the book; British Antique Furniture by John Andrews, published by the Antique Collectors' Club.
Overall this is a fine English 18thC Georgian dining table.
CONDITION:
Repair to one outer leg on the inside top, where it joins the frame ( only visible from underneath). Please see image of underside. This is a good repair and the leg is structurally strong- please see underside image. Wear consistent with age and use with some age related marks and rubs from use.
