Description

A rare opportunity to acquire one of a number of superb quality dining tables recently acquired from the prestigious public school Arnold School in Blackpool.

The school was founded in 1896 by Frank Truswell Pennington and was first established as South Shore Collegiate School. Famous Alumni from the list of Academics, Athletes and Business persons etc include Sir William Lyons - Co-founder of Jaguar Cars, Michael Smith - Nobel Prize Winner, Jimmy Armfield CBE - 43 caps for England football team and captained 15 times, Tom Graveney - 79 tests for English Cricket, John Pritchard - Current Bishop of Oxford, Geoffrey Thompson - Owner of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Jenna-Louis Coleman - Actor (Current Dr Who Companion, Emmerdale, Captain America). We estimate that these tables were commissioned for the school in the 1920's and testament to their quality of construction and timbers(Oak legs and stretchers - mahogany tops) they are as sturdy as when made. Due to a great many years at the mercy of thousands of schoolchildren we have undertaken to refinish a small number of these tables in a manner which is more of today's tradition, but if you had a certain requirement we might be able to accommodate your request.

These would be equally at home in a upmarket restaurant or in the family kitchen. A rare opportunity to acquire a piece of history.

The large tables have been completely refinished with the mahogany top re-polished and the undercarriage given a limed oak finish. On some of the tables there are still traces of the youthful calligraphy/graffiti, hand carvings and stabbings, these have been mostly toned down and coated over. All part of their history and character.
