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 12 Victorian revival balloon back dining chairs.

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 vintage set of  twelve balloon back dining chairs date from the second half of the  20th Century.

These chairs have been masterfully crafted in beautiful solid mahogany throughout and the finish and attention to detail on display are truly breathtaking.

The set comprises ten side chairs and two armchairs, all of which feature an attractive balloon back design and seats that have been upholstered in the finest golden damask fabric.

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.

Mahogany 
is probably one of the largest ‘families’ of hardwood, having many different varieties within its own species.

Mahogany has been used for centuries in ship building, house building, furniture making etc and is the core structure of just about every 19th century vanity box, dressing case or jewellery box. It became more of a Victorian trend to dress Mahogany with these decorative veneers, such as Rosewood, Kingwood, Burr Walnut and Coromandel, so that the actual Mahogany was almost hidden from view.

Mahogany itself is a rich reddish brown wood that can range from being plain in appearance to something that is so vibrant, figured and almost three dimensional in effect. 

Although Mahogany was most often used in its solid form, it also provided some beautifully figured varieties of veneer like ‘Flame’ Mahogany and ‘Fiddleback’ Mahogany (named after its preferred use in the manufacture of fine musical instruments).

Cuban Mahogany was so sought after, that by the late 1850′s, this particular variety became all but extinct.


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.
