Here we have a very attractive and imposing Three Pillar Mahogany Dining Table & 14 Chairs, carefully matched to complement each other perfectly.
This dining table & chairs set is not your average run-of-the-mill set that could be obtained from almost any furniture retailer, on or off line. Instead, this is a very large, variable length, marquetry dining table that, in its longest configuration, is big enough to accommodate up to 14 people in comfort. This makes it a real contender for use in a conference room, company boardroom or in a restaurant or hotel dining room for use at banquets, wedding receptions and other special occasions.
Manufactured towards the end of the last century, this Regency dining table is made from the finest flame mahogany and is sure to be a talking point wherever it is placed. It has two additional leaves which can be added to extend it, when required, into a large dining table to suit any occasion. It would work equally well as an eye catching boardroom table or as a formal table in a hotel or restaurant.
To provide the kind of strength and stability that a table top of this size requires, and in keeping with the Regency dining table style, this table top stands on a total of three ‘gun barrel’ triple leg bases which have been fitted with brass toes and castors for ease of movement. This gives the table a distinctive styling adding to its overall grandeur.
The amazing craftsmanship that has gone into this elegant table is obvious, even at first glance, with the table surface having been given a crossbanded border which was created using satinwood. This enhances the lovely warm tones and grain of the flame mahogany wood ensuring they are shown off to perfection.
Supplied with a set of 14 matching chairs
This dining table & chairs set is supplied complete with a set of solid mahogany chairs which feature inlaid crossbanded satinwood decoration to match that of the table. They also have drop-in seats which can be removed in the hot weather so as to utilise the cooler caned seats situated below.
As you can see from the gallery of photographs above, this Regency style large dining table & chairs set is in excellent condition.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
