For your consideration today is a outstanding Victorian Mahogany three piece dining room set in the Horner style that consists of a Winged Griffin round banquet table 14 Feet long, a carved sideboard and a beautiful carved curve glass china cabinet that dates from the 1880's era. The 60 inch circular banquet table has a leaf- and scroll-carved apron supported by seated, winged griffins, centered by a split column, opening to accommodate three skirted and five un-skirted leaves for a total of 7 leaves. The dimension of the fabulous table is 30" in height , 60" round when closed and a total extended length 164"-14 Feet!, the bowfront buffet with a band of drawers over a pair of bowfront doors, flanked by doors and a full-width drawer below, all adorned with applied carving, and the china cabinet in like decor with a serpentine glass door and rounded glass side panels. The height is 63", 57" wide and 19-1/2" in depth. The closet has plate glass shelves. The overall condition is very nice and most likely was refinished quite a while ago and is in a nice rich reddish brown Mahogany color. No major negatives but does have the normal nicks and dings from use to be expected. Shipping for the set to your home in the New England states would be $700.00 and outside New England we can quote for you if you email us your zip code. Provenance: Reverend William State Jacobs, Houston, Texas, to his daughter-in-law Ruth Farrington Jacobs Faris to the current owner. Notes: The banquet table was reputedly a gift to Jacobs from his congregation, the First Presbyterian Church. Franklin Roosevelt is said to have dined at this table following his speech nominating Al Smith as the Democratic Party's presidential nominee at the 1928 Houston National Convention.
