Antique Victorian 7 ft Dining Table (C1880) with 6 Georgian Hoop Back Chairs

Ideal for a family Christmas - deep mahogany with plenty of tradition, t his outstanding combination that would complement any period home and has a classic design that would also combine with a more contemporary setting. The extending table is s urprisingly elegant for an item of this era. Places can be laid very comfortably for 8 but it has been used for dinner parties of up to 12 using the beautifully curved ends. T he six chairs, from earlier in the 1800s, are a subtle and delicate design that works very well with the sweep of the table legs.
These are genuine antiques but are in superb condition. The table was professionally restored and re-polished just before I owned it, t he winding gear is complete and in full working order, as are the 4 brass castors. All the joints are very firm and the two leaves fit perfectly with no gaps or warping. The chairs are in equally good condition with solid leg-to-frame joints and surprisingly (for age) intact upholstery. As one would expect with items of this age there are a few marks and scratches on the table and the chairs have some patches of light colour on the upholstery with some slight movement on the upper section of the hoop on two chairs. They could easily be re-upholstered or you could leaved them in genuine condition without detracting from the overall setting of your room.
