Large 19th Century Mahogany Extending Antique Dining Table

About

This antique dining table is exceptionally versatile and extremely well made. The top is made of huge sheets of the finest mahogany, the legs are made from single pieces of solid mahogany and even the mechanism is made from dense grained mahogany. There are original clips for the existing leaves and there is a clip holder in the mechanism. There is an order number stamped to the mechanism which starts with an L which is usually a Gillow mark. There are original leaves that take it to a fraction under fourteen feet and one more leaf would make it almost sixteen feet long. Unusually for an antique dining table the sizes are almost round numbers in feet, that they are a small amount under a round figure is probably due to shrinkage. The table is five feet round, each leaf is two feet, so the table can be five feet long, seven feet, nine feet, eleven feet, thirteen feet, or fourteen feet with a smaller leaf. With the addition of another two foot long leaf the table can be sixteen feet long. This table is extremely solid and strong. The design of the mechanism and the quality of construction means that we can firmly attribute this table to Gillow of Lancaster and London. English, circa 1860 Measures: 152cm / 5' round 74cm / 29" high one leaf 213cm / 7ft two leaves 273cm / 9ft three leaves 334cm / 11ft four leaves 396cm / 13ft then 426cm / 14ft or 487cm / 16ft with a new leaf.
