This beautiful dining set comprises a Regency Revival Jupe style dining table mid 20th Century in date, with the matching set of eight bespoke Regency style dining chairs.

The table has a solid mahogany top with a reeded edgethat has five additional outer extension leaves that can be added around the circumference. It is raised on a central turned column and reeded quadruped splayed legs, terminating in brass cappings and castors

You pull out some slides, see photos, from the sides of the table and fit the leaves on them by sliding them onto the leaves and securing them with brass clips, which are located underneath.

With the leaves attached around the circumference, it is 194cm  in diameter and it can seat eight people in comfort, with the leaves removed it is 153 cm in diameter and it can then seat six people.

It has an attractive matching mahogany baize lined cabinet in which the leaves and clips are housed when not in use.
 
This fascinating table illustrates all the very best elements of English cabinet-making combined with the remarkable burst of inventiveness of the Industrial Revolution. It was not until John Johnstone and Robert Jupe patented their ingenious design in March 1835 for an expanding round table,that round dining tables, which had suffered from the problem of not offering flexibility of seating, could compete with the established rectangular extending dining tables.

The matching set of eight bespoke Regency Revival dining chairs have been masterfully hand crafted in a beautiful solid flame mahogany with a very high standard of workmanship and an enviable finish which is sure to impress. They feature an attractive bar back design which has very skillfully hand carved decoration and they also feature the popular 'drop in' style seats which are upholstered in the finest hard wearing olive green suede effect fabric.

There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome set, which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.

Jupe Dining Table
In 1835 Robert Jupe was granted British Patent No. 6788 for an expanding table. The original Jupe expanding table includes a table top that is divided into a number of sections. Each section is connected to an underlying frame structure, such that when the table top is rotated, the sections move radially outward, increasing the effective size of the table top. Once the table top has been rotated to move the table top sections outward, leaves are inserted between the sections, so as to fill in the spaces created by the outward movement of the sections. Because the table top sections diverge and move radially outward from a central point, the Jupe table top retains its shape in its expanded configuration.

The Jupe table has now become one of the most valuable and sought after antiques. Original Jupe tables in good condition may sell for up to $350,000 at the time of writing. However, despite its popularity, the Jupe table has been very difficult to mass produce, because its workings are both extremely complex and entirely handcrafted.

For example, the frame structure that supports the table top sections in the Jupe table is comprised of many individual beam structures that are secured together to form the frame. Each of those beams must be individually made and assembled to exacting tolerances in order to ensure that the table top sections will move freely and mate in the center of the table top to form a substantially contiguous table surface in both the contracted and expanded configurations. The manufacture of such a structure is time-consuming and is not conducive to rapid production.

Other aspects of the Jupe table design also make the design difficult to implement. For example, in at least some of the existing examples of functioning Jupe tables, the pivot for the table top is a threaded rod that runs the entire length of the table pedestal. That is an extremely difficult and time-consuming configuration to replicate.
