Gorgeous Antique Regency Dining Tables
Regency furniture follows the earlier neoclassical Georgian style which had taken its inspiration from the ancients, but during the Regency Period it became the fashion to make exact copies of ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman furniture. Key features of the furniture of the period include using brass inlays, sabre legs, cable twist, metal grilles and ormolu.
Regency dining tables were first produced during the reign of George IV (1811 to 1820), although the style has continued to be reproduced, making a huge impact on designers.
A remarkable example of Regency period dining tables is this elegant flame mahogany twin pillar dining table, dating from circa 1820.

Beautiful Antique William IV Dining Tables
William IV furniture maintained a similar style to Regency furniture with copies being made using the earlier Regency designs, but they were executed in a coarser and heavier way, resulting in a clumsier appearance than their Regency counterparts.
Dining tables from this period were mostly made of mahogany with heavy brass fittings and lion’s paw feet on table legs. These magnificent pieces represent classic English dining furniture.
