Vintage 3 Pillar Dining Table by William Tillman & 12 dining chairs 20th C

$14,805.80per set


This is wonderful vintage dining set comprising a Regency style dining table by William Tillman and a set of twelve bar back dining chairs, circa 1980 in date. The table is made of stunning solid flame mahogany and is raised on three "gun barrel" turned columns on quadruple swept sabre leg bases which are fitted with brass toes and castors. This table was purchased at great expense from the master cabinet maker William Tillman, Crouch Lane, Borough Green Kent in the 1980s. The table has two leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion. This makes it a versatile dining table which can comfortably seat twelve people. The underside bears labels for William Tillman and is stamped 443A. The fantastic vintage set of twelve Regency revival bar back dining chairs also date from the late 20th century. Masterfully handcrafted in beautiful solid flame mahogany, the finish and attention to detail on display are truly breathtaking. The set comprises ten chairs and two armchairs, all features attractive hand carved bar back design with 'drop in' seats that have been reupholstered in the finest teal green damask. Condition: In excellent condition the table having been beautifully cleaned, polished and waxed and the chairs polished and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.

It has been sold in all of the famous London Stores including Harrods, Peter Jones and Maples and will almost certainly be considered important antique furniture of the future. Every piece of furniture was produced with the utmost skill and knowledge to ensure that the finished article would bear the most critical comparison with the original. Whilst the polish used was resistant to heat and water, the finished surface has a wax patination similar to that found on early furniture. Tillman pieces won the British Furniture Manufacturers, Showpiece of the Year award in three consecutive years. Flame mahogany 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.
