A Very Large George III Five Pedestal Dining Table, c1780

About the Item

A rare and important George III five pedestal dining table c1780, with four leaves. The rounded rectangular top of superb timber with reeded edge and tilting action to each pedestal, the vase and ring-turned baluster pillars are raised on quadruple, reeded splayed supports terminating in large brass caps and castors. Pedestal tables were an innovative design of the late 18th century. This was the beginning of a period of opulent entertaining and long, lavish dining. The pedestal table ensures comfortable seating without having to straddle a leg as well as easy disassembling after dinner to create space for entertaining and dancing. Built in England exclusively for grand estates, tables of this size and quality were few in number. The ravages of time and war have made them extraordinarily rare. World War II produced hardships that facilitated the closing of many of England’s stately homes and frequently large pieces of furniture were remade to suit smaller homes and often during desperate times were cut up and used as firewood for heating and cooking. This table was purchased in 1930 by an American for a southern plantation and thus helped insure its survival. Family history states it may have been made by Gillows of Lancaster, but we have no direct proof of that, although it certainly has all the qualifications to belong to that select group. The table is 20.5 feet long x 60” deep x 28.5” high. The 2 "D" ends are each 29"W. The other 3 pedestals measure: 2-26.25"W each, and 1-28"W. The 4 leaves measure: 25"W/26"W/28.5W"/28.5W". So the length is actually 246.5" total. N.P. Trent has been a respected name in antiques for over 30 years with a large collection of period furniture, art and decorative accessories.
