This is a rare opportunity to own an antique early Victorian, flame mahogany dining or conference table, circa 1850 in date and a set of twelve vintage Queen Anne Revival dining chairs, dating from the mid 20th Century.


The superb dining table has four original leaves which can be added or removed as required by a special winding mechanism. The leaves can be easily removed and stored away when not required.

It stands on five elegantly carved and fluted legs that terminate in elegant brass cap castors The central leg is for added stability when it is fully extended.

This table was made from solid mahogany by a master craftsman, and should last for generations more. Take a look at the amazing and brilliant system of runners that pull out as you extend the table to support the leaves..

The set of  twelve vintage Queen Anne Revival dining chairs date from the mid 20th Century.

The set comprises ten side chairs and a pair of armchairs. They have been masterfully crafted in beautiful solid mahogany and the finish and attention to detail on display are truly breathtaking.

They feature drop in seats upholstered alternately in red and green tartan, with attractive cabriole front legs terminating in ball and claw feet, sabre rear legs and superb shell carved decoration to the knees.

There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome dining set which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.

Thomas Sheraton - 18th century furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."

The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.


Winding Mechanism for extending tables
A man by the name of Samuel Hawkins applied for a patent on a screw expander on June 6th, 1861. Presumably, Mr. Hawkins either died or retired because his business was taken over by a young machinist named Joseph Fitter  in 1864.
Joseph Fitter operated a machinist shop where he produced winding mechanisms for extending tables as well as screw expanders for piano stools and other applications at 210 Cheapside, Birmingham England by the name of Britannia Works.
