Quality made Cuban mahogany mid Victorian 9 foot (2.9 metres) extending dining table, with 3 extra leaves, circa 1860.
An attractive, mid Victorian wind out or extending dining table with 3 extra leaves, extending to 9 feet (2.9 metres).
This table is beautifully made with its elegantly carved scroll legs and carefully chosen figured tightly grained Cuban mahogany or "Jamaica Wood" as it was known . It certainly looks immpressive with all three leaves in place and can easily accomodate up to 12 guests when fully wound out, yet it has the advantage of using just one or two leaves, or non at all, and fully closed up reduces in size to around five foot. Even though it is a substantial table it is easily moved around on its original clay castors. The mechanism works very well, and all leaves fit nicely in place. The table is of good colour, (which is best represented in the close up photo showing the grain on the original leaves), the table has been traditionally hand french polished retaining its character and patina. It truly is a beautiful piece of furniture!
This dining table would work well in a traditional setting, or equally within a more eclectic setting as can be seen in the photos.

DIMENSIONS: 2.9 metres (9 feet) fully extended.
