This beautiful burr walnut 'Jupe' dining set is in the Regency style, with the leaves attached around the circumference, dating from the last quarter of the 20th century.

The table is 210 cm in diameter and can seat ten people in comfort, with the leaves removed, it is 155 cm in diameter, and can seat up to eight people.

The burr walnut veneers on the top are of the highest quality and this is highlighted by the crossbanding on the outside edge.

It is very solid as there is a large central base flanked by four columns which give the table its superb stability.

You pull out the slides, see photos, from the sides of the table and fit the leaves on them by sliding them onto the table and securing them with brass clips, which are located underneath.
There is an attractive matching burr walnut cabinet in which the leaves are housed when not in use.

The classic and sophisticated design of the ten Regency style walnut and inlaid dining chairs compliment the table beautifully.

They are typical of Regency style furniture which was prevalent in England during the Regency Period, 1811-1820, of George, Prince of Wales. He later become known as George IV.

The chairs have elegantly carved solid walnut frames with fabulous burr walnut and inlaid decoration to the backs. The upholstered seat cushions can be removed to reveal weaved cane seats and this allows for cooler and more comfortable dining in the warmer summer months.

They have been lovingly French polished and are ready to grace your dining or conference room.

This dining set is in superb condition. Please see photos for confirmation of the condition.

Burr Walnut refers to the swirling figure present in nearly all walnut when cut and polished, and especially in the wood taken from the base of the tree where it joins the roots. However the true burr is a rare growth on the tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. Burr walnut produce some of the most complex and beautiful figuring you can find.

Jupe Dining Table
In 1835 Robert Jupe was granted British Patent No. 6788 for an expanding table. The original Jupe expanding table includes a table top that is divided into a number of sections. Each section is connected to an underlying frame structure, such that when the table top is rotated, the sections move radially outward, increasing the effective size of the table top. Once the table top has been rotated to move the table top sections outward, leaves are inserted between the sections, so as to fill in the spaces created by the outward movement of the sections. Because the table top sections diverge and move radially outward from a central point, the Jupe table top retains its shape in its expanded configuration.

The Jupe table has now become one of the most valuable and sought after antiques. Original Jupe tables in good condition may sell for up to $350,000 at the time of writing. However, despite its popularity, the Jupe table has been very difficult to mass produce, because its workings are both extremely complex and entirely handcrafted.

For example, the frame structure that supports the table top sections in the Jupe table is comprised of many individual beam structures that are secured together to form the frame. Each of those beams must be individually made and assembled to exacting tolerances in order to ensure that the table top sections will move freely and mate in the center of the table top to form a substantially contiguous table surface in both the contracted and expanded configurations. The manufacture of such a structure is time-consuming and is not conducive to rapid production.

Other aspects of the Jupe table design also make the design difficult to implement. For example, in at least some of the existing examples of functioning Jupe tables, the pivot for the table top is a threaded rod that runs the entire length of the table pedestal. That is an extremely difficult and time-consuming configuration to replicate.
