This beautiful dining set comprises a Regency Revival Jupe style dining table mid 20th Century in date, with a 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 cumberland design stretcher base with 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 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.
It has an attractive matching mahogany green 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.
In excellent condition the table having been beautifully cleaned and polished and the chairs polished and upholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
