A Very Fine Quality Regency Period Mahogany Twin Pillar Extending Dining Table Having Exceptionally Well Figured Top To Tilting Ends And Original Removable Leaf Raised On Turned Central Columns And Elegant Four Splay Scrolling Bases With Superbly Carved Decoration.

This regency mahogany dining table is of quite exceptional quality. The mahogany used in its construction is the best timber which would have been available on the market to the original cabinet maker at the time and the quality of craftsmanship displayed in the execution of the carved decoration throughout is again superb.

The design is of relative typical form for a twin pillar table in the late 18th, or early 19th centuries, whereby you have two individual end sections, which can then be joined together with, or without the additionally supplied leaf. The leaf on this table is of course original, which again is excellent news. When positioned together in whichever format is preferred the different sections are o course rigidly held together by brass clips, making the table nice and sturdy to eat at.

Another nice feature not often seen is that both ends have tops which can be tipped. Therefore when the table is not in use each end can be pushed away into the corner of a room allowing the table to take up a significant amount less floorspace. This was a particularly important feature for tables supplied to the wealthiest of 18th and 19th century households where an evening of drinking and eating early on, would be followed up by little light entertainment which usually involved dancing, so the table being out of the way meant that a dance floor space was automatically created in that room.

We have had many dining tables over the years and in terms of the ones which will comfortably seat 8, with the possibility even of 10, this is definitely one of the nicest which we have had. We look forward to seeing it go to a good home where no doubt it will get many years of use and end up with a large amount of wonderful stories to tell from evenings involving great entertainment that have been hosted around it.

Circa 1835.
