Table Drop Sides Mahogany William IV

A fine mahogany example fitted with a drawer and castors. From the pre Victorian era (1800 to 1830) with drop sides this is a useful and elegant entertaining table for the home. Some of the finer aspects of the cabinet maker’s skill are partly hidden. The castors concealed beneath the feet and the delicate turning on the pedestal, fully revealed when the side flaps are lifted.

Modern Extension Table and 6 High Back Chairs

This one is really quite clever. A comfortable solid compact table in Tasmanian oak. With a very built in extension at each end. We may have led a sheltered life over the last 30 years in this game, but we had not previously encountered this method. Each end has a fold out (butterfly ) leaf that can be used independently. The table is very solid ( a good start for a robust entertaining life), and the fabric covered chairs are comfortable, clean and well sprung. Faults? A 0.5 cm bruise on one edge.

Recommended.
