This unusual and versatile Regency mahogany extending dining table is constructed in four sections and has a reeded edge to the rounded rectangular top.

Provenance
The Dean and Chapter of Durham Cathedral
This exceptional dining table was formerly in Durham Cathedral and was probably made for the Prior’s Hall, in the Deanery, when it served as a dining room. The Prior’s Hall is a 19th Century room with a medieval ante-room, formed within part of the monastic buildings attached to the Cathedral church and is now used for conferences, lectures and meetings. Latterly this table was used for meetings of the Trustees of the Lord Crewe Trust. (Nathaniel, Lord Crewe was Bishop of Durham from 1674 until 1722.)
