This is a fantastic antique early Victorian dining table, bought on my last buying trip to Devon, offered with a set of twelve matching swag back chairs.

This amazing table has four original leaves and can seat  twelve people in comfort. It has been hand-crafted from solid flame mahogany which  has a beautiful grain and is in really excellent condition.

The four leaves can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special winding mechanism. The leaves can be easily removed and stored away when not required.

The table has five, for stability, beautiful reeded legs, which have been masterfully hand carved and they sit on their original brass and porcelain castors, which makes it easy to move when required.

The set of twelve Vintage swag back chairs compliment the table perfectly. They are hand carved from solid mahogany and have been beautifully upholstered. They comprise ten chairs and two armchairs.

This stunning dining set will stand out in your dining or conference room and will definitely become a key piece in your furnishing collection.

Flame Mahogany
Thomas Sheraton
 - 18th century furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."

The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.


Winding Mechanism for extending tables
A man by the name of Samuel Hawkins applied for a patent on a screw expander on June 6th, 1861. Presumably, Mr. Hawkins either died or retired because his business was taken over by a young machinist named Joseph Fitter  in 1864.
Joseph Fitter operated a machinist shop where he produced winding mechanisms for extending tables as well as screw expanders for piano stools and other applications at 210 Cheapside, Birmingham England by the name of Britannia Works.
