Early C19th George IV period metamorphic mahogany extending dining table of Wilkinson patent type.
Early C19th George IV period metamorphic mahogany extending dining table of Wilkinson patent type.

Excellent quality table in first-class ,untouched original condition .

The grade of selected timber is of the highest quality and together with the design of the leg , may also suggest a possible "Gillows of Lancaster and London " attribution .
