We know that lovers of Art Deco will be aware that such sets are rarely put onto the market so we expect this one to attract a lot of attention.
The Art Deco Dining Table
This versatile table is a nice example of an Art Deco antique dining table and dates to around 1930. It is an adjustable length dining table, the length can be increased or reduced by means of the expansion panel which is included. The table is finely crafted using beautifully figured birdseye maple and the table top has rounded corners. It is mounted onto strong and attractive twin pedestal legs which provide sturdy support for the substantial table top.
When this table is fully expanded its height is 77 cm (or 2 feet, 6 inches), the length is 153 cm (5 feet) with a depth of 84 cm (2 feet, 9 inches). When the dining table is closed the height and depth are the same, but the length reduces to 107 cm which is equivalent to 3 feet, 6 inches.
The Art Deco Chair Set
The chairs set here is a rare find because it is believed to be the original set of 6 dining chairs that were with the table when it was first sold.
Like the table and the cocktail cabinet included in this set, these Art Deco chairs are also constructed from birds eye maple. They are expertly upholstered in a very comfortable and lovely looking white leather. Of particular interest are the elegant curved chair backs which really make a feature of the fine birds eye maple timber.
The chairs measure 99 cm high x 137 cm wide x 53 cm deep which is equivalent to 3 ft 3 in x 4 ft 6 in x 1 ft 9 in.

This Art Deco cocktail cabinet is a serpentine shaped with cabinet fitted with a concertina cocktail section and a mirrored interior situated above a bank of three drawers. The first drawer is fitted out as a cutlery drawer. The cabinet is flanked by a shaped door on each side which both open to reveal a useful and spacious cupboard fitted with a central shelf.
This Art Deco cocktail cabinet measures 99 cm high x 137 cm wide x 53 cm deep. That’s 3 ft 3 in x 4 ft 6 in x 1 ft 9 in.

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.
