For everyone out there who is a lover of Art Deco furniture and all things Art Deco, we present this Antique Art Deco Birdseye Maple Dining Table & Chair set including the original 6 Art Deco dining chairs upholstered in lovely white leather.
This is a wonderful example of an Art Deco antique dining table dating from 1930. It is an expandable dining table, the length of which can be adjusted by means of the included expansion panel. Finely crafted in beautifully figured birdseye maple the table has rounded corners and is mounted onto 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.
Please make sure that this Art Deco dining table fits into the space you have in mind for it before placing your order.
The Art Deco Chairs
This is a dining table & chairs set and as such it is a real find because it is supplied with what we believe are the original set of 6 dining chairs that were with the table when it was first sold.
These fine chairs are also constructed from birds eye maple and are upholstered in a very comfortable and lovely looking white leather. Take special note of the elegant curved chair backs which really make a feature of the fine birds eye maple timber.
As you can see from the accompanying photographs, this antique Art Deco dining table & chair set is in excellent condition and will be a real asset to any dining room.

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.
