You are viewing a stunning English Victorian style 14 foot dining table and a matching set of Chippendale Chairs. I hope the photos do this stunning set some justice – it really is better in the flesh. Eating together whether with family or friends is probably the most important thing we can do – so why not do it in total style and quality with a set that will last for generations? We appreciate it’s quite an initial outlay but this will last for centuries hence making it a great investment and family heirloom. It was hand made here in England to centuries old traditions and the quality is out of this world.
This can be viewed in our large Hertfordshire warehouse / showroom – please contact us if you would like to view. If you are further afield I hope the photos are sufficient!
The table is a Victorian extending diner that works by a winding mechanism at one end (please see close up photo). The table has four leaves each measuring 18 inches so there are numerous different combinations with this table. A leaf is an extra section of the table you can drop in. There are two D ends at either end of the table each measuring 4 feet. You could have just the two D ends together and the table would be round. Fully extended it is 14 feet long – and this would sit 12 people more than comfortably, perfect for large scale dinner parties and functions.
The hand turned bulbous chunky balloon shaped legs are on castors so this table is easy to move around. There is even a leg under the middle of the table which makes it easy when you use the winding mechanism. The finish to the table is gorgeous, deep luxurious mahogany. The table is solid and sturdy, wobble free and comfortable to sit at.
The high backs are hand carved and feature the scroll design to the top and the curved backsplat. The legs are gently cabriole and feature a shell motif to the top. These are incredibly solid and sturdy with tight joints so wobble free. The seats have just been reupholstered so are free from any previous owner smells such as pets and smoke, always a bonus.
We bought this set from a dealer in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, whilst on a recent buying trip in the Garden of England. Fire away with questions – and bidding!
