The table stands on a pair of tripod bases, has an oval top, the fabulous matching set of eight chairs are all armchairs, it is rare to find a set of eight armchairs, they have upholstered seats and backs with show wood on the back of the chairs.
The fantastic matching demi-lune sideboard has a door at either end, opening to reveal capacious cupboards, with central shelves, large enough to house your dinner service or to be used as a bar. It has a useful bank of four capacious drawers in the centre, ideal for storage of table cloths, serviettes, cutlery, etc.
The grain of the birdseye maple is truly breathtaking and the finish is of the highest quality. The handles are original and delightful to behold.
All items have been fully restored and the armchairs have been reupholstered.

Birdseye Maple occurs primarily in Sugar Maple and is a very hard wood with divergent grain structure caused by the presence of the Birdseyes.
In the days when all furniture was made essentially by hand, Birdseye Maple was used by only the most capable cabinetmakers. These artisans had developed the tools and skills to work and finish Birdseye Maple successfully. Antique furniture made out of Birdseye Maple is rare and beautiful.
The divergent grain that makes Birdseye Maple beautiful also makes it difficult to work. Early woodworking machines ran at low rpms and had only 2 knives per cutterhead. This often produced Birdseye surfaces that were chipped and torn. It took many hours of hand planing and scraping to get these surfaces to a high sheen.
This limited the use of Birdseye maple to projects whose value could justify the extra labor cost. Examples of this are fine furniture and musical instruments.
