Very Fine & Large

Antique Antiques UK

Dining Table seat 18 Large Victorian Mahogany Extending

This superb Victorian Mahogany Dining Table circa 1850, has very beautiful carved legs, and the six extra leaves allow it to extend from 65" (165)  x  56" (143) oval top 
each of the  6 leaves is in a range of sizes from 15" (38)  to  18" (46)
allowing the table to extend with great flexibility from a beautiful oval seating 4, 6 or 8,
up to a 161" nearly 13ft 6in (412)
seating 16 or 18 people

Leaf Holder with 6 leaves
The existence of leaf holder is rare, and denotes the quality of the table when it was originally made - very few extending tables were made with a leaf holders, and even fewer have survived over the intervening  centuries.  This particular leaf holder is even more desirable in that it does not simply hold the leaves, but it fitted with display shelves to the front, a most unusual and useful addition.  It means that not only can the leaves be conveniently stored in the baize lined cupboard concealed at the side, but the piece may be used to display items on the attractive shaped shelves, which are united by spiral turned columns.
