Object Description

An Extremely Good Quality, Mid 18th Century, George II Period Solid Mahogany Oval Drop Leaf Dining Table, To Seat 8 People, Having Extremely Well Figured Two Flap Top Retaining Exceptional, Rich, Untouched Colour And Patina, Raised On Four Elegant Turned Legs Terminating With Original Pad Feet.

Georgian drop leaf dining tables of this design are relatively common to find, however it is rare to find one of this size and in this condition, which retains such a fabulous colour and patina. It is also quite nice to find an oval one, which is not far off being circular when extended.

This is a superb example of its type, constructed from what would have been the absolute best solid mahogany available in the mid 18th century and because of that the table is still as fit for purpose as the day it was made. It is particularly solid even with the moving legs fully extended and this allows for great functionality.

Of course another tick on the desirability scale for this table is that it can be easily folded down and even pushed against a wall, or into a corner when not in full use, meaning one does not require such a large dining room as may otherwise have been required. The table also retains a fabulous untouched colour and patina and has very clearly not ever been stripped and repolished or anything like that.

Seating 8, this table is one of one of the most desirable antique dining table forms available and would work with a whole variety of different dining chairs, in a whole variety of different settings from a formal townhouse dining room to a country cottage kitchen diner.

It has of course been through our workshops where it has been simply cleaned, any loose joints tightened and naturally waxed using traditional antique furniture restoration techniques, leaving it ready to go straight into use in your home.
