18th Century George III Period Mahogany Antique Dining Table
Eighteenth century mahogany antique dining table standing on four pedestals, each with four splay base. This is a wonderful table which has faded to a desirable golden brown honey colour. The bases are strong and a generous shape and the top of each leg and the edge of the top is reeded.
The removable leaves are missing, they will be replaced with new ones made from period timber. This means that the final length can be tailored to order. The first two photographs are an artists impression of how the table will look.
Please ask about restoration and shipping options.

18th Century George III Period Mahogany Four Pedestal Antique Dining Table
18th century George III period mahogany four pedestal antique dining table. This is one of the best tables we have seen, it is a tremendous scale at almost eighteen feet long and very well drawn. It has elegant outstretched four splay legs which are a great shape, having a slight hint of the Regency knee that would come later. The legs fall sharply down before curving to run almost parallel to the floor and they terminate a long way from the pedestal. It has the close reeding on the top of the legs typical of this pre-Regency period. The length of the leg, the shape of the leg and the reeding colaborate to provide a most pleasing and well balanced table base.
The catches are of the swing type which means that they cannot get lost. They are of the highest quality, some are inscribed Farlar & Bullock and others Bullock, Tonks & Bedington, 90 Wardour Street.
This table is "unseen" as it came to us in 2006 from Aynho Park without having been on the open market. It has been in private hands from 2006 until now once again we have the privilege to have custody of this wonderful and important country house dining table.
The top of the table is made of huge sheets of a very fine cut of mahagany which has attained a wonderful colour and patina over the centuries. There are three removable leaves and four premanant tops, any of these can be removed to make the table several sizes smaller. It is also possible to extend the table to make it larger, so please ask for details if a longer table is required.

Aynho Park, Oxfordshire.
This table was most probably made for Aynho as part of the improvements carried out to the house by Sir John Soane in the 1790s. There is a lot of very interesting history about the Cartwright family of Aynho Park going back for centuries, please ask for details.
Below the last two photographs are of the table in situ in Aynho Park taken in 2006.

19th Century George IV Period Mahogany Antique Extending Breakfast Dining Table
19th century George IV period mahogany antique extending breakfast dining table standing on central four splay base. This is an extremely strong and versatile dining table which can be adjusted to seat from four up to a comfortable twelve (or fourteen with either two at each end or one at each end without side plates). The leaves can be stored inside the table itself which is extremely rare for a table of this period and is quite an achievement when the sheer size and weight of the leaves is taken into consideration. The timber used for this table is second to none, it is a dense grained, slow growing mahogany with excellent grain pattern and beautiful parallel lines. The leaves are original thank goodness, as this size of leaf is very hard to find and extremely expensive to replace nowadays. The discrepancy between the colour of the leaves and the table ends will no longer be evident following restoration, so please do not worry about that.
This table represents a remarkable feat of engineering, as it has to be designed specifically to take the weight of the leaves which are unsupported at the ends, but also has to be manufactured to a very high tolerance in order to eradicate the natural movement in the mechanism which a legged table would be able to get away with. I could go on, but in conclusion would like to say that this is a really special table, wonderful timber, a fantastic design and it is really impressive both visually and from a constructional standpoint.

19th Century Mahogany Three Pedestal Antique Dining Table
19th century three pedestal antique dining table with two removable leaves. This is a very finely constructed dining table and it is made from a choice cut of mahogany. This is a very flexible table as the two end tables have the ability to be put together to form a table separate from the centre pedestal. There are casters underneath which can be raised up to provide a higher surface height if required, however there is a twenty four inches knee clearance already which is usually considered plenty. Do contact us for information about restoration and shipping times.

19th Century Willliam IV Period Mahogany Three Pedestal Antique Dining Table
19th century William IV period mahogany antique three pedestal dining table. This dining table is made of large sheets of a very fine cut of dense grained mahogany. The grain pattern is very interesting and the whole table has attained a lovely colour and depth of patina over its hundred and eighty years. The three tops are removable and also tilt for easy storage or to move from room to room. There are two small leaves which allow the table to be turned from a dining table into two smaller breakfast tables. With the addition of two extra leaves this table will extend to around eleven and a half feet long and seat twelve to fourteen people. Interestingly this table has inverted dovetail brass clips which were patented by Nettlefolds. Also unusual are the wooden casters. Wood or leather casters were used to avoid damage when moving the table around on floors which were made of marble or other expensive material. This is a really fine table and must be seen to be appreciated. Call or email with any questions.

Antique Twin Pillar Dining Table
Antique George III revival twin pedestal dining table standing on outstretched three splay bases. This table has no frieze and so there is plenty of room for knees. Judging by the timber and the construction, the pedestals look as if they may be from the 1780 period, the top having been put on perhaps to replace if the original was damaged.
