Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
I bought this fabulous set from a beautiful country house in Stockton on Tees.
It dates from the second half of the 20th Century, is of fabulous quality and is in excellent condition.
It is highly desirable to have large round tables for dinner parties as all the guests can talk to each other easily.
The table top is two metres in diameter and has been crafted from wonderful solid flame mahogany. It stands on a fabulous large four legged centre base which means that the table is very stable. This base has been hand carved from solid mahogany and the crisp foliate carving has been beautifully accomplished.
The elegant set of ten Vintage Victorian style Admiralty back solid mahogany dining chairs comprises eight side chairs and two armchairs.
The chairs have fabulous hand carved decoration, are raised on turned legs and upholstered in a beautiful damask fabric.
This fascinating set represents all the very best elements of English furniture making. There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with your guests at mealtimes.
In really excellent condition, 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.
