The styles that developed throughout the early 19th Century were an extension of the current political situations but also in accordance with the needs of the rising middle class during the industrial revolution. This impressive dining table is exemplary of the early Victorian era with its Pollard oak and delicate crossbanding.
The four leaves can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special winding mechanism, the leaves can be easily stored away when not required.
The table is raised on four elegant turned and reeded legs that terminate in the original brass caps and castors.
The fantastic antique English set of twelve mahogany shield back dining chairs are of "Hepplewhite" design, circa 1880 in date.
The set comprising ten side chairs and two armchairs, the shield-shaped backs with shaped and pierced splats have beautiful hand carved leaf swag, wheat sheath and anthemion decoration. The overstuffed seats are upholstered in sumptuous caramel brown hand dyed Scottish leather with double cone hand-springing and brass studs. They are raised on square tapered front legs that terminate with spade feet.
These chairs have been masterfully crafted in beautiful solid mahogany throughout and the finish and attention to detail on display are truly breathtaking.
In excellent condition having been beautifully restored in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
