A fine rare large Art Deco burr walnut Extending Dining table and twelve matching chairs following a design by Ray Hille, circa 1920 in date.
The stunning rectagular top with canted corners has has been hand-crafted from burr walnut, which has a beautiful figured grain, and French polished. It has two large leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion and stored away when not required.
The table is raised on a masterfully hand carved central shaped quadriform base with outset block feet.
The twelve armchairs have an equally gorgeous design and are also slightly unusual, with curved shell backs. They are also beautifully finished in burr walnut and have green leather upholstery.
Whatever the function of this gorgeous set, it will make a profound impression on your dinner guests and will receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed.
It is very rare to find a large Art Deco dining table with the original set of twelve armchairs, as tables in the Deco period were normally made to seat six or rarely eight, so twelve is unheard of.
In really excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, French polished and waxed in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
