Regency mahogany 14+ seat extending dining table

The Canford Cliffs dining table

Here we have this fine Regency dining table made of superb figured Cuban mahogany, attributed to Gillows

This dining table extends on a sliding system of rails, has its 4 original leaves, that extends the table to sit 14+ comfortably.

Normally, a table of this period stands on tripod columns, but this is a very rare design, where the legs are on turned supports, with swept legs with the original brass paw castors at the toe. This system means that there is far less clutter around your feet when the table is in use.

Imagine the pleasure this table will bring you, either when it is not in use or when you are entertaining your family and friends.

A Regency mahogany dining table like this, would have been made for an important house when it was first made, and would have been a custom made order, not one off the peg.

The Cuban mahogany timber for this table,would have been transported by a large merchant sailing ship, across the  Carribean sea, and then onwards across the Atlantic ocean. The timber was stored in the depths of the ship and used as ballast, to keep the ship stable.

Once the sailing ship had battled across the oceans, and finally safely moored in Liverpool docks, it would have been unloaded by the dockworkers, before being transported overland on horse and wagon to the timber merchants. Here, the cabinet makers would have chosen the best Cuban mahogany timber to be used on this superb dining table.

This table was made circa 1820, a time when Robert Jenkinson ( Lord Liverpool) was the Prime Minister, George IV had just ascended the throne, the Cato conspiracy to kill the Cabinet had been thwarted. HMS Beagle had been launched, which would later take Charles Darwin on his scientific voyage. This dining table has survived and seen many of major world events including the World Wars, mankind’s progress to flight and the new information age.
