This is a important and rare Queen Anne revival walnut jupe action dining table by Gillows, dating from the late 19th century.

The amazing table features a shaped circular crossbanded top with a moulded edge,  the six triangular segments rotating and expanding to accomodate two sizes of leaves. This means that the table can be set to three different sizes as required to suit the occasion.

The shaped top and frieze is raised on shell-carved cabriole legs terminating in pad feet.

The table is stamped  GILLOWS twice and bears the serial no. 96643.

The two sizes of white metal capped set of six large leaf inserts, and six small leaf inserts come complete with a leaf carrier chest .

The table seats four with all leaves removed, six with the small inserts and eight with the large inserts.

 
 
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.

Gillow & Co. 
was originally founded in Lancaster in 1730. Gillow’s of Lancaster was a household name in Victorian Britain, and the firm exported furniture throughout the Empire. Key to the company’s success was the dynamic father and son team at its core.

The London branch was opened in 1775. Among Gillow’s most successful pieces during this period were those made in the Neoclassical style from original drawings by Robert Adam. In the period 1813-1820 the Gillow family gradually withdrew from personal involvement with the business.

In 1897 Gillow & Co. merged with a Liverpool firm and they henceforth traded as Waring & Gillow.
