This beautiful dining set comprises a Regency Revival Jupe style flame mahogany dining table and a set of ten Regency Revival dining chairs, dating from the mid 20th Century.
The table has a solid mahogany top with a fabulous flame mahogany starbust effect and five additional perimeter leaves that can be added around the circumference.
It is very stable as it features a large mahogany central column that is raised on four downswept reeded splay legs that terminate in brass sabots and castors, which give the table it's superb stability.
With the leaves attached around the circumference it can seat up to ten people in comfort, with the leaves removed the diameter is 158cms (5ft 2 Inches approx) and can then seat six to eight people.
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 ten Regency Revival Bar Back chairs are made of solid hand carved mahogany and have been upholstered in a sumptuous olive green suede 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.
In excellent condition the table having been beautifully cleaned and polished and the chairs polished and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
