This beautiful dining set comprises a Regency Revival Jupe style dining table mid 20th Century in date, with the original matching lazy susan.
The table has a solid mahogany top with five peripheral leaves that can be added around the circumference and features a large revolving lazy susan that can be added or removed as required. 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 approx 7ft in diameter and can seat ten people in comfort. With the leaves removed it is approx 5ft in diameter.
It has an attractive matching mahogany green baize lined cabinet, with brass carrying handles, in which the leaves and clips are housed when not in use.
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 set, which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.
