Rare early extending antique dining table. The idea of an extending dining table was one that dates back centuries. However, there was not a really useful way of making a table adjustable, while retaining its structural integrity, until around 1805. This was the year of the first patent for a concertina or scissors action extending dining table, which was taken out by Wilkinsons of Moorfields in London.
Not long after this the later system of sliding bearers became widespread, so having a concertina action is a good indication of age.
This table is made of good solid mahogany with surprisingly heavy leaves, there is reeding and turned decoration on the legs.
As this table is also an extending Pembroke table it has hinged leaves so it can be stored and transported much more easily.
This is especially useful so it can be carried from room to room or out to the garden without having to be turned on its side.

English circa 1815
