A fine quality late Regency period mahogany extending Dining Table, retaining exceptional colour and patina.
Well figured top with two original removable leaves raised on elegant turned and fluted legs with superbly carved corner patrae and original brass castors.
With a whole plethora of options available in terms of antique dining tables it can be an absolute mine field trying to decide which suits each individual purpose.

The extending design is of the full out type which is generally seen in the earlier Georgian and Regency versions, the wind out design more commonly seen is generally regarded as a victorian and later feature.
Another advantage of this design is that there is just the 4 corner legs which allow maximum flexibility in terms of chair and human leg positioning without the extra table legs getting in the
It is also nice to know that it has retained its original two leaves, these have often gone missing throughout the years on other tables.
