19th Century Irish Country Squire's Oak Telescopic Dining Table

$ 4,800
  • Description
    From circa 1860, five beautifully turned baluster legs on brass castors, beautiful oak patina on top with a high gloss finish.

    It is very rare to find one of these made of solid oak, most were made from mahogany.

    This leads us to the conclusion that this was most likely made for an Irish ‘Country Squire’ rather than a ‘titled’ person. It’s size is more suitable to a medium sized formal dining room and not a large one like in Manor Houses. Oak was also more affordable than mahogany.

    It has a beautiful octagonal shape.

    The table has a telescopic mechanism to extend or shorten the table, you turn the mechanism to remove one or add a leaf and tighten up the table to make it smaller.

    The mechanism works like the winding of a clock !

    This table has one re-movable leaf.

    The table seats eight people comfortably.

    Four support legs on the corners and one central support leg.

    This table would grace the finest of dining rooms !

    Provenance: Bought from a Estate/Manor House in Ireland.

    Table knee clearance is 24.5".
    Table Leaf width is 28.2".
