Early C19th Regency mahogany dining table in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster. Highly practical and adaptable drop-leaf centre dining table of 3 sections raised upon 12 finely-turned and shaped legs. The twin D-ends raised upon original brass socket castors. The drop-leaf centre section with double gate-action to each leaf which provides a stable platform when open to secure to the D-ends with the original brass sockets and forks.
Highly-quality manufacture throughout with cock-beaded rule joints between all the elements to achieve an excellent fit when clipped together. The design and grade of timber offering a strong attribution to the workshops of Gillows of Lancaster , although not signed.
A good practical dining table with a completely flat top when fully extended. Could be used in a variety of forms to suit different occasions and functions. Adapting as 2 side tables and a drop-leaf supper table when not required in full form.
Comfortable 10-seater dining table when fully-extended. The turned legs being inset to the frame to aid comfort of seating and the shallow frieze offering good leg-room.
All original throughout . Variations to colour through exposure to sun-light , the slightly darker drop-leaves having been less used , however it has the original surface and has achieved a pleasing lightly-faded mellow patina.
Some marks and old scratches to polish and surface commensurate with age and use , but crucially retaining its original 'skin' and polished surface.
