This is a beautiful bespoke contemporaryflame mahogany Regency style 'Jupe' dining table which can seat eight people in great comfort and can accomodate ten when required.
We make this to order so we can make it to your bespoke size, finishes and specifications.
The flame mahogany veneers on the top have been arranged so as to give a sunburst effect and it is finished off by the elegant crossbanding on the outside edge.
The table is very solid as there is circular base with four columns which give the table its superb stability, raised on four splayed legs terminating in brass castors.
There are slides that pull out from the sides of the table and you fit the leaves on them by placing them on the slides and securing them with brass clips, which are located on the underside of the leaves.
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.

Thomas Sheraton-18thcentury furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."
The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.
