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.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, polished and waxed in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
