This is a beautiful Regency Revival Jupe style flame mahogany dining table, dating from the mid 20th Century.
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 cumberland design stretcher base with quadruped splayed legs, terminating in brass cappings and castors
With the leaves attached around the circumference, it is 184cm in diameter and it can seat eight people in comfort, with the leaves removed it is 128 cm in diameter and it can then seat six 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.
There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome table, 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 in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
