Victorian Mahogany Extending Dining Table C.1880
Here we have this Victorian antique extending dining table that takes 2 extra leaves. This dining table, made circa 1880, winds out on a telescopic action. This allows the extra leaves to be added for use. You my use this table with any combination of leaves. You may want to use it closed without leaves or add one leaf for a larger party or both leaves set in to allow you to seat 10 or more. This solid mahogany table, has rounded corners and a finely turned mahogany leg to each corner. Each leg has the original china wheel castor and brass collar. Imagine sitting and entertaining with your friends and family at this dining table. Having a leg to each corner, makes the table very stable during use. The dining table extends by using a winding handle, that when turned, opens the table out very easily, on a patented telescopic spiral worm. When this table was first made, the owners may well of sat there, horrified about the military disaster at Isandlwana during the Anglo-Zulu war, and then uplifted by the heroic defence of Rorke’s Drift in the following days. They may have discussed a visit to London to watch the first performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera ‘The Pirates of Penzance’. Many other topics would have been spoken about during the lifetime of this dining table. Can you imagine the excited chatter as Man first flew, the First World War had ended and Man had walked on the Moon. This dining table is now ready to start its new life with you, and be there for generations to come.
