Antique Twin Pillar Dining Table

Antique George III revival twin pedestal dining table standing on outstretched three splay bases. This table has no frieze and so there is plenty of room for knees. Judging by the timber and the construction, the pedestals look as if they may be from the 1780 period, the top having been put on perhaps to replace if the original was damaged.

Antique three pedestal dining table

Antique three pedestal dining table with extremely unusual support mechanism. Each end of the table has two swinging arms which attach to the centre section. Almost unique at this early period, this enables the three pillars to support four floating removable leaves. This mechanism also allows for full flexibility as it can also support two leaves in the conventional way, as well as being able to fit together with the three main tables with no floating leaves at all.
This table really has it all, really fine timber, wonderful four splay bases and this unique mechanism for the ultimate in versatility.

Antique three pedestal dining table

Antique three pedestal dining table made of huge sheets of really fine quality Cuban mahogany. This table has it all, excellent colour and patination,  a wonderful country house scale and outstretched legs which terminate parallel to the ground.

The three tops are made of six huge sheets of timber cut from the same piece to create a symmetrical grain pattern on each section. The edge of the top is double thickness the whole way around. This device is a specifically Irish construction method which increases the strength of the top and keeps the leaves from warping without the need for an obtrusive frieze. As with all tables that have no frieze, this one has plenty of knee room for tall guests.

This table has an early version of the so called "Regency Knee" and has elegant outswept legs which run almost parallel to the floor at the extremity.
