This marvelous double pedestal dining table is a newly hand-crafted piece originating from England. Fashioned by a third-generation cabinetmaker, this table features rich flame mahogany, rosewood banding, and a length that expands from 80″ to 120″ with two additional leaves.
Antique style with modern functionality
As an antique style pedestal dining table, this piece benefits from centuries of fine furniture craftsmanship. The pair of turned pedestals, each with fluted legs and brass feet with casters, take inspiration from Duncan Phyfe’s famous 19th-century designs. Each pedestal supports a single leaf that secures to the base with brass pins. Two wooden beams come with this table so that when the additional leaves are added (each providing 20″ to the total length of the table), the beams run through supports attached to the bottom of the end leaves. The extra leaves sit on top of these beams and secure to one another with male/female joints and solid brass latches. This antique design allows the pedestal dining table to be as flexible as possible for use in the dining room. In terms of length this allows the table to measure 80″ long without either of the extra leaves, 100″ with one extra leaf, and 120″ with both extra leaves.
Rich flame mahogany and rosewood banding
As beautiful as it is useful, this stunning English dining table features a rich selection of flame mahogany with rosewood banding. The banding complements and distinguishes the mahogany, creating a beautiful appearance that should look lovely in any setting. Additionally, the wood has been treated to an elaborate, seven-stage finishing process that ended in a fine coat of hand-rubbed wax. The wax both enriches and protects the natural beauty of the wood and can be re-applied about twice a year (with normal use) to maintain this outer coat. As a final touch, the wood has been very lightly distressed to lend it a little character.
An heirloom quality dining table
Few pedestal dining tables compare either in beauty or quality to this fine antique style table. In addition to the convenient function and classic style, this table is also very well-made and structurally extremely sturdy. The time-tested design of the leaves–complete with wooden beams and brass latches–is very reliable and will operate smoothly for many decades. The underlying solid wood itself is very strong. This fine dining table will certainly last for generations to come as all true heirloom-quality furniture should.
