This is a beautiful Regency Revival dining set comprising a Jupe style dining table by the renowned cabinet maker William Tillman, and a set of ten dining chairs, dating from the last quarter of the 20th Century.
The table has a solid mahogany top with five peripheral leaves that can be added around the circumference when required. It is raised on a square quadruple swept sabre leg base fitted with brass lion cappings and castors.
This table was purchased at great expense from the master cabinet maker William Tillman, in Harrods, in the 1980s.
To fit the leaves pull out the slides from the sides of the table top and fit the leaves onto the slides, securing them with brass clips.
With the leaves attached around the circumference the table is approx 7ft 4 inches in diameter and can seat ten people in comfort, with the leaves removed it is approx 5 ft 2 inches in diameter.
The superb vintage set of ten Regency Revival flame mahogany dining chairs are made of solid mahogany with fabulous satinwood crossbanded decoration accented with boxwood and ebony line inlay. They stand on elegant reeded tapering front legs with sabre back legs.
They all have drop in seats which are upholstered in a striking burgundy and gold fabric. The seat cushions can be removed to reveal cane seats which allow for cooler and more comfortable dining in the warmer summer months.
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.
