Crafted in England around the year 1960, this stunning oval dining table is made of rich mahogany wood. The expanding table top rests on a joined sturdy pedestal base with brass feet, and overall condition is good. This table would be especially ideal for a formal dining furniture collection.
A flexible oval dining table
When the leaf is in use, this table measures 77″ long, an ideal size for a medium to large gathering around the dinner table. However, the table can be made even smaller when the central leaf is removed, making the total length just 59″. The leaf itself is very simple to remove and insert and this can be done by one person. This makes the oval dining table a very convenient piece!
Classic antique furniture design
This table is also quite beautiful, with rich mahogany in a beautiful brown color. The wood displays a deep, lustrous complexion that can only come from a combination of factors. The wood itself is high quality but looks especially rich because of the fine finishing process, which would have included several stages. A wax coating also helps enrich and protect the natural beauty of the wood and can be re-applied twice a year with normal use of the table. In addition to the wood itself, a number of other classic Georgian style features adorn the table, including turned pedestal bases, fluted legs, and brass panther feet.
Inside the frame of the top is a maker’s label showing the manufacturer as Beithcraft Ltd.
Few antique oval dining tables compare either in beauty or utility to this one, and even fewer remain in such sturdy condition. Structurally, this table is quite strong. The leaf goes in and out easily and the pedestals are quite stout. The top has sustained numerous light finish marks which are visible in the glare of an overhead light. There is a small ring as well. Finally, there are a few very small dings on the edges. Overall this dining table remains in good condition and would make a fine addition to any antique furniture collection!
