This is a fantastic antique oval Victorian dining table, bought on my last buying trip to Devon, offered with a set of ten balloon back chairs.

There is no mistaking the style and sophisticated design of this exquisite English antique Victorian solid mahogany extending dining table, circa 1870 in date.

This amazing table has three original leaves and can comfortably seat ten people in comfort. This striking table has been hand-crafted from solid flame mahogany which has a beautiful grain and is in really excellent condition.

The three leaves can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion by a special winding mechanism. The leaves can be easily removed and stored away when not required.

The table has the most beautiful reeded legs which have been masterfully hand carved and they sit on their original brass and white porcelain castors, which makes it easy to move when required.

Whatever the function of this gorgeous table, it will make a profound impression on your dinner guests or clients and will receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed.

The set of ten Vintage ballon back chairs compliment the table perfectly. They are hand carved from solid mahogany and have been beautifully upholstered. They comprise eight chairs two armchairs.

This stunning dining table will stand out in your dining or conference room and will definitely become a key piece in your furnishing collection.

Thomas Sheraton - 18th century furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."

The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.Winding Mechanism for extending tables
A man by the name of Samuel Hawkins applied for a patent on a screw expander on June 6th, 1861. Presumably, Mr. Hawkins either died or retired because his business was taken over by a young machinist named Joseph Fitter in 1864.
Joseph Fitter operated a machinist shop where he produced winding mechanisms for extending tables as well as screw expanders for piano stools and other applications at 210 Cheapside, Birmingham England by the name of Britannia Works.
