This fantastic flame mahogany table was bought at great expense from Harrods in Knightsbridge in London in 1982. It was made by master cabinet maker William Tillman who was making superb reproduction furniture from the 1970s until his retirement at the end of the 1990’s. His furniture enjoys an amazing worldwide reputation for being of the highest quality and is collected throughout the world. Items such as this flame mahogany dining table were sold in all the famous London stores including Harrods, Peter Jones and Maples. There is no doubt that his furniture will be considered amongst the finest antique furniture in the future.
Raised on three gunbarrel bases, each has four sabre legs that terminate in brass castors. This flame mahogany dining table has two leaves which can be added or removed so the table is endlessly adaptable to suit any occasion. The polish used is resistant to heat and water yet the finished surface has a wax patination that is similar to that found on early furniture.

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).

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.
