A truly magnificent round Victorian dining table made in Australia in the last quarter of the 19th century. Please note the beautiful turned base and elegantly cocealed castors.
The tilt mechanism is not complete. This is a mixed blessing as such tables are often more secure screwed into the table (rather than display) position. Modifications are reversible.
An excellent height for dining also at 76 cms. Original tables are often a l;ittle too low.
Price A$ 495
136 cms wide x 76cms high
Refectory table from Paris 208c x 75c $1875. Six oak chairs, reproductions in the style of Louis XV, in oak, also from France $895 for six. And in the back an A shaped wine rack that holds ten dozen for $525. Two of these are available and you’ll
never guess what country they were made in. That’s right! Fabrique en France.
Modern dining table with black glass top set into the frame. $590. The price includes eight black high back chairs which we suspect are vinyl. If this is the case it will be good news for animals the world over. If not, well leather enthusiasts may find their interest revived.
This image of the front of the shop this Saturday shows the large collection of tables we have received in the last couple of days. Including a really well built trestle table and a Fifties smaller wooden table. And, a first for us (against the right hand front window) an original painting on a table top by local artist Gemma Paley. So you can hang that table on your wall or put some legs under in it (in the time honoured tradition). Ms Paley moved to St Kilda this weekend (hence the reason for the sale) but we still hope she regards herself as a “local”.
