It bears the impressed mark of the renowned maker Thomas Turner of Manchester.
The table and chairs have been made from hand carved solid walnut and the table top has been expertly relined with a pair of green hand dyed Scottish hide insets.
It has eighteen frieze drawers with solid mahogany linings, each with brass lock and key, and it is raised on six beautifully turned and carved bulbous and fluted legs terminating in brass castors.
The fabulous matching set of sixteen antique Victorian solid walnut chairs have elegant carved top rails and fluted stiles above overstuffed seats and are raised on turned baluster supports joined by an H stretcher.
They have been expertly reupholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued to match green leather lined table top. The brass studding was achieved with close individual studs not by using strips, and each stud was individually hammered in by hand.
It is a fabulous set which would look very grand in any board room.
This boardroom set is in really excellent condition having been beautifully restored relined and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
