The table can seat twelve in great comfort and would also be perfect as a conference table.
This flame mahogany dining table has three leaves. The leaves measure 60 cm each and can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion.
The table stands on five reeded legs, that terminate in brass cap castors, for extra stability.
The set of twelve solid mahogany balloon back dining chairs comprises ten side chairs and a pair of armchairs. The chairs have just been reupholstered in a fabulous cream damask.
In excellent condition having been beautifully restored and the chairs 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.
