This fabulous dining set comprises a Regency Revival Jupe style flame mahogany dining table by William Tillman, C1970 in date and a set of ten antique Victorian balloon back dining chairs, C 1850 in date.
The beautiful Regency Revival Jupe style flame mahogany dining table was made by the master cabinet maker William Tillman, Circa 1970 in date.
The table has a solid mahogany top that has five additional perimeter leaves that can be added around the circumference. It is very stable as it has a large mahogany central column that is raised on a central base with 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 set of ten Victorian mahogany balloon back dining chairs are Circa 1850 in date.
These chairs have been masterfully crafted in beautiful solid mahogany throughout and the finish and attention to detail on display are truly breathtaking.
The overstuffed seats have been reupholstered in a sumptuous claret damask fabric and they are raised on turned and reeded legs.
It is rare to find such a large, fabulous and comfortable set of chairs and they will enhance your dining table beautifully.
There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome dining 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.
