Expanding dining tables like this are extremely hard to come by. Their rarity exists because it is both more difficult to make a round table that expands with leaves around it, and because it takes a good sized room to fit one. If you have a good size dining room and would like the versatility of a table that can go from 60″ in diameter to a large 84″, then this is the piece for you!
This piece is vintage, made in England sometime around the year 1960. The wood used is mahogany which has a beautiful medium to dark color with some lighter tones. This variance allows you to easily match up chairs and other furniture to this dining room centerpiece. The wood has held up in excellent condition over the years. There are a few small marks in the top which were probably done by the maker on purpose to give the table a little character. We have included a photo of one for you to see. The very center of the table is enhanced with a Georgian style fan inlay made of satinwood. This is an important detail as it really helps define the size and shape of the table.
Starting off with this expanding dining table in its smaller, 60″ diameter you can comfortably seat six people. The leaves are attached via pull out slides from underneath the top and then secured together with brass clips underneath. The brass clips provide some pressure to keep everything tightly together, and because of this, the last one you put in is a little hard to get pushed in. Once all secured the top is tight and stable. At its full 84″ diameter you can easily seat 10-12 people.
For shipping purposes the top of this expanding dining table does separate from the base. This is a very unique and beautiful piece of furniture that would make a statement in any dining room!
