Antique three pedestal dining table made of huge sheets of really fine quality Cuban mahogany. This table has it all, excellent colour and patination, a wonderful country house scale and outstretched legs which terminate parallel to the ground.
The three tops are made of six huge sheets of timber cut from the same piece to create a symmetrical grain pattern on each section. The edge of the top is double thickness the whole way around. This device is a specifically Irish construction method which increases the strength of the top and keeps the leaves from warping without the need for an obtrusive frieze. As with all tables that have no frieze, this one has plenty of knee room for tall guests.
