The table is made of beautiful solid flame mahogany, has a pull out mechanism and two leaves that can be added or removed as required. It has beautiful reeded legs in the manner of Gillows, and sits on its original brass castors.
This table was made by a master craftsman and should last for generations more.
The set of six antique solid mahogany hand carved balloon back dining chairs have just been restored and reupholstered in beautiful cream damask, the joints are tight and there is no wobble.
These chairs are of fabulous quality and are made of Cuban mahogany, which was the best quality mahogany that was available to early 19th Century cabinet makers, the colour and density of this wood has to be seen.
In excellent condition having been beautifully restored and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.

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.
