Large Regency period mahogany dining table


Antique solid mahogany extending dining table of exceptional colour and figuring. English, circa 1820.

W: 282 cm.
H: 71 cm.
D: 122 cm.

BHA 1050



A large Regency period dining table of fine well-figured faded mahogany, retaining all its original leaves. Raised on slender turned legs which swing on a gate-leg action, with brass cups and castors.

This is a versatile model offering a variety of alternative combinations depending on the space available. It can be also used as a drop-leaf or as a smaller dining table.

Its configuration confers the huge advantage on diners to sit comfortably without any obstruction caused by skirts or a multitude of awkwardly positioned supports. The generous width allows for serving dishes and centrepieces to be placed conveniently down the middle of the table.

Nb. This antique early 19th century table has an exceptionally well-figured, faded and patinated top, and most importantly, unlike so many others, retains all its original leaves, which are of superb colour.

Ralph Edwards CBE FSA illustrates an expanding dining table with almost identical turned legs, dated ca 1810, ‘The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’, Hamlyn Publ, Fourth Impression, 1972, London, p 540, ill 26.
