- Item Not Available
This beautiful mahogany 'Jupe' dining table is in the Regency style and is very functional. With the leaves attached around the circumference it is 210cm ( approx 7ft ) in diameter and would seat 10 people in comfort and 12 at a pinch.. With the leaves removed, it is 155 cm ( approx 5 ft) in diameter, and would seat up to 8 people.
The flame mahogany veneers on the top have been arranged so as to give a sunburst effect and it is finished off by the inlaid shell at the centre.
It is very solid as there is a beautiful centre base with four columns terminating in sabre legs with brass toe cap castors. This gives the table it's superb stability.
You pull out some slides, see photos, from the sides of the table and fit the leaves on them by sliding them onto the table and securing them with brass clips, which are located underneath.
There is an attractive matching mahogany cabinet in which the leaves are housed when not in use.
This fascinating table illustrates all the very best elements of English cabinet-making combined with the remarkable burst of inventiveness of the Industrial Revolution. It was not until John Johnstone and Robert Jupe patented their ingenious design in March 1835 for an expanding round table,that round dining tables, which had suffered from the problem of not offering flexibility of seating, could compete with the established rectangular extending dining tables.
There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome table, which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.
The chairs in the photographs are available for sale so please see our shop for other options.
This dining table is in superb condition. Please see photos for confirmation of the condition.
Fully extended: 210 cm in diameter and 78 cm in height.
With the leaves removed it is 155cm in diameter.
