This is a fantastic Vintage Victorian Revival marquetry dining set, comprising a gorgeous burr walnut and marquetry D-End dining room table with the matching set of eighteen chairs, dating from the late 20th Century.
The table is made from burr walnut which has a really beautiful grain and it has four leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special double winding mechanism. The table is raised on six elegant marquetry decorated faceted legs for stability and they terminate in brass cup castors.
The table top has a band of exquisite floral marquetry and this regal decoration includes bouquets of beautiful flowers.
The matching set of eighteen chairs comprises sixeen side chairs and a pair of armchairs. The chairs are made of solid walnut, have been beautifully French polished and upholstered, and the exquiste marquetry decoration is hand cut to match the table. The drop in seats can be removed in hot weather so that the cane seats below can be utilised.
This stunning set would also be appropriate for a conference room, whatever its function it will make a profound impact on your guests and will receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed.
Purchased from a large country house near Oxford, see photos of the table and chairs in situ.
