Remarkable Antique Dining Tables at Regent Antiques
Victorian dining tables are a particular favourite with their solid structure and extensive use of solid timbers, notably mahogany. These pieces are recognisable by their curvaceous lines, carefully-carved details and a leaf system to extend the table.
Take for example this fabulous antique Victorian mahogany and gilded twin pedestal dining table bearing the impressed mark of the renowned cabinet makers and retailers Wylie & Lochhead, dating from circa 1850.
One of the advantages that this superb table has is the ability to be transformed from quite small to very large as required. It has four extension leaves which are stored separately when not required and are usually added when needed with minimal effort with the aid of a special winding mechanism.
This lovely table is made from solid mahogany and is raised on a pair of beautifully carved and gilded pedestal bases with downswept legs terminating in scroll feet and the original brass and porcelain recessed castors.
Whatever you choose to use it for, this large and impressive table will not let you down and will always be as versatile and useful as you need it to be.
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.
The table is of rectangular form with rounded corners and reeded edge. It is raised on twin baluster column supports with four reeded legs ending in brass caps and castors.
This fantastic table has one leaf which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion. This makes it a versatile dining table which can comfortably seat eight people.
The table top is made of beautiful flame mahogany and there is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome dining table which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection.

This amazing large table can seat fourteen people in comfort and has been hand-crafted from stunning solid flame mahogany. Some things just get better as they get older, and mahogany furniture is certainly one of those things, if properly looked after it develops a timeless beauty, a patina, that reflects many years of loving use.
The beautifully figured flame mahogany top is D-end shaped and has four leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special wind out mechanism. The leaves can be easily removed and stored away when not required.
