    victorian dining set table & adams mahogany chairs suite

    You are viewing an auction for a gorgeous Victorian style mahogany dining table and a set of 8 matching Adams style chairs. The table stands in at an impressive 12 feet when fully extended. This is a sumptuous dining set fit for a king and I hope the photos do this amazing piece some justice.

     
    The table is Victorian style and extends via the handle at one end of the table which winds the table up so you can take the leaves out or add them to suit your needs. It also means the table can be made a lot smaller for every day use and big for lavish dinner parties. The table sits 8 people very comfortably - please see the photos to show how it looks with the chairs around it and also the extending mechanism.
     
    The table has chunky hand turned legs and they are on castors so you can move it around easy. This would have been made by craftsmen on the Norfolk coast in England, a region famous for this type of furniture.
     
    The chairs are solid and wobble free, ready for home use right away. The back splats have been hand carved with typcial Hepplewhite designs including oval shapes and half rosettes, plus on the arm chairs are the acanthus leaf designs to the arms.
     
    The seats are cushioned and have just been reupholstered with a flower print cream fabric. As this is new it comes free from any previous owners smells such as pets and smoke, always a bonus.
     
    The chair backs are very distinctive with the shield shape and the hand carved designs including the classical urns and swags, a common Adams motif. The chairs are solid and sturdy, no wobbles to the joints and very comfortable to sit in. We have various mahogany dining tables available to match so please email if you are interested in buying a set. We would of course offer a great discount for buying a set. Also check out store. The seats have just been repholstered with a flower print fabric, so these are offered free from any previous owners smells such as smoke and pets. We bought these from a dealer in Sheringham, Norfolk.
     
    Adam was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, the second son of William Adam (1689–1748), a stonemason and architect who was Scotland\'s foremost designer of country houses at the time. His younger brother and business partner James Adam was also an architect of some note, as was his older brother John Adam, although both were overshadowed by Robert.
     
    He is considered by many to be the greatest architect of the late 18th century, and a leader of the neo-classical revival in England and Scotland from around 1760 until his death. Sir William Chambers was the leading British official architect of the era, but Adam received many important commissions from private clients and had a more lasting stylistic influence, termed the Adam style.
