William IV mahogany 16 seat dining table
Here we have this magnificent extending dining table, that extends to take 4 extra leaves.
This table can be used with the leaves taken out, or with any combination of the extra inserts. This makes this table very versatile.
This table was made in the workshops of one of the most prominent cabinetmakers in the day James Winter, 101 Wardour Street, Soho, London
James Winter and Sons were in 101 Great Wardour Street between 1823 and 1840. They then moved to larger premises.
James Winter furniture is well known to be of the highest quality in this period.
Items of Winters furniture are in the C. Gilbert book, Marked London Furniture.
The table is fitted with 8 solid mahogany turned legs, that end with the original brass cup rolling castors.
The table has a telescopic sliding action that pulls smoothly, to receive each extra leaf. The table has brass table forks that secure the tables top.
In the last images you will see that the table comes into 2 sections that can be placed against a wall
This high quality table would have been made for one of London’s grand homes, and imagine the parties and events that would have been held around this fine table.
There are 4 leaves supplied with this table, the 1 original and 3 that were added later after 3 were lost in the blitz.
