MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE
Fabulous 200 year old mahogany extending dining table.
Dates to the Regency period of around 1820.
It's a double pedestal table which was the height of fashion
at this time and only for the well to do as the glorious pedestals
on this table were incredibly costly to produce as those curved legs
had to be fashioned out of a single large piece of timber, not to
mention the thickness of each of the turned main supports.
The carved 'knee' adds sophistication and the brass 'hairy paw'
terminals are of the highest quality casting.
These pedestals were so expensive to produce that invariably the table tops
of these tables are relatively plain in comparison to counteract the expense of the legs.
The extending mechanism has been changed at some point and now has
a simple brass clip system that holds the three sections together
along with some wooden pegs underneath the table.
The top of the table has had a modern finish applied by a professional
restorer by the previous owners to make the table a little more
funtional for modern living.
It measures 227cm long with the centre section which is 75cm wide
(therefore making the table 152cm without the extension).
We have priced this table to reflect the fact that it has had
some changes made to it and the modern finish to the top.
If you look on line in England a similar table in more
'original' condition is many many thousands of pounds.
