This is a beautiful dining set comprising a flame mahogany expanding dining table in the manner of Johnson, Jupe & Co, dating from the 19th century, and a matching set of twelve swag back dining chairs, dating from the 20th C.
The rare large antique Victorian metamorphic flame mahogany circular extending dining table comes with two sets of leaves and is in the manner of Johnstone, Jupe and Jeanes, dating from Circa 1870.
The circular top is quartered and extends by a windout mechanism to accommodate four large rectangular leaves or four segmented leaves.
This means that the table can either be extended to form a circular dining table, approx 6ft in diameter, or amazingly it can also extend to become a rectangular dining table approx 12 ft in length.
The table is raised on five square tapering legs terminating in spade feet with the original recessed castors.
The table can seat four when the table is circular without leaves, six to eight when extended in circular form and twelve comfortably when extended in rectangular form.
The delightful Vintage set of twelve swag back dining chairs date from the second half of the 20th Century and compliment the table beautifully..
Masterfully crafted in beautiful solid mahogany throughout, the finish and attention to detail on display are truly breathtaking.
Comprising ten chairs and two armchairs, all featurimg an attractive swag back design with 'drop in' seats that have been reupholstered in the finest claret damask.
This dining set will astound your guests and become an integral part of your furniture.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, polished and waxed and the chairs reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
