British Colonial Rosewood Extending Dining TableMid 19th century
An exceptional British colonial rosewood extending dining table. The top, with a deep moulded edge, extends well beyond the base. The table has a telescopic under-frame that extends via a winding mechanism, which allows the table to be extended while the centre leg remains in place.
It has four additional leaves; 2 of 51 cm (or 20“) and two of 55 cm (or 21 ½”) which can be added or removed. Fully extended, the table measures 380 cm x 136 cm (or 12 ft 6” x 4 ft 5”) and can seat 14 people comfortably.
The table is raised on four carved turned and fluted bulbous tapering legs that end in brass castors.
The table is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
