Lovers of Art Deco and Art Deco furniture in particular, will really appreciate this Antique Art Deco Dining Table & Chairs Set including 6 Chairs.
This Art Deco dining table & chairs set dates from around 1930 and is crafted from fine quality burr walnut. It can seat six people in comfort. The table stands on two very sturdy pedestal supports which are terminated with four contrasting colour wooden feet on each of the pedestals. The table has canted corners and has been French polished in order to emphasise the full beauty of the burr walnut and its lovely grain.
As you can see from the gallery of photographs, this antique Art Deco dining table is in excellent condition and has been carefully and sympathetically restored in our own workshops.
This Art Deco dining set includes a lovely set of 6 matching dining chairs, as can be seen from the photographs. We are pleased to confirm that this set of chairs is from the same period and we believe it to be the original set of chairs supplied with the table when it was first sold.
This set of six antique Art Deco burr walnut chairs are known as “Skyscraper” chairs, due to the design on the back of the seats - please see photographs. Art Deco fans will be aware that it is a bit of a rarity to find an original Art Deco period 1930s dining set like this and as such we expect this one to be in high demand.
These Art Deco Skyscraper Chairs, like the accompanying table, are in truly excellent condition. They have been fully reupholstered in a striking, sumptuous white leather and attached with decorative chrome studs.

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.
