Object Description

Early 19th century Regency mahogany extending dining table attributed to Gillow of Lancaster and London. This table has one of the best runs of matched mahogany that we have seen for a long time. The timber has a really beautiful grain pattern and it is either all from the same tree or has been carefully chosen so that it all matches. Being an importer of timber themselves Gillow had vast range of timber at their disposal and the grain pattern chosen for this solid mahogany top is typical of their best pieces, as too is the fiddle back veneer chosen for the frieze at the ends and either side. The mechanism is a very clever double sash movement which unusually allows the ends of the top to over sail the legs. This means that there are no legs at the corners when the table is fully extended. The mechanism itself is very well constructed and it still slides very smoothly. This table will seat twelve comfortably and can squeeze fourteen if they are good friends.
