This beautiful dining set comprises a Regency Revival Jupe style dining table mid 20th Century in date, with a matching set of eight Vintage Swag Back dining chairs.
The table has a solid mahogany top with five peripheral leaves that can be added around the circumference. It is raised on a Cumberland design circular stretcher base with quadruped sabre legs, terminating in brass cappings and castors
With the leaves attached around the circumference the table is 183cm in diameter and can seat eight people in comfort. With the leaves removed it is 127cm in diameter and can then seat six 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 matching set of eight Vintage Regency Revival Swag Back dining chairs have been masterfully hand crafted in a beautiful solid flame mahogany with a very high standard of workmanship and an enviable finish which is sure to impress. They feature an attractive swag back design which has very skillfully hand carved decoration and they also feature 'drop in' style seats which are upholstered in the finest claret damask.
There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome 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.
