Very unusual antique dining table. This early nineteenth century extending dining table is made of oak covered with medullary rays and with cross banding in brown oak. This table was made at the height of the Regency period, the age of mahogany. There were some important designers who made furniture out of indigenous timber at this period, most notably George Bullock. However, the use of oak for construction of high fashion furniture was not common at the time.
There are many aspects of the design which are typical of manufacture by Gillows, one of the best English furniture designers and manufacturers. The legs are closely reeded, the frieze is narrow for maximum knee room and the table splits into two separate consul tables. In addition the construction is of a very high quality with dovetails and a precise extending mechanism.
