This is a beautiful Regency Revival Jupe style flame mahogany dining table 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 four downswept splay legs united by a conforming undertier terminating with brass paw feet and castors.
When required you can add the leaves around the perimeter by pulling slides out from the sides of the table and sliding the leaves on them.
With the leaves attached around the circumference it can seat up to ten people in comfort, with the leaves removed the diameter is 167cms ( 5ft 6 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.
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.
In excellent condition the table having been beautifully cleaned and polished in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
