Antique Victorian 12 ft Flame Mahogany Extending Dining Table C1860 This is a beautiful flame mahogany Victorian antique dining table dating from the 1860s. This amazing antique dining table can seat fourteen people in comfort and has been hand-crafted in solid flame mahogany which is renowned for its beautiful warm coloured grain. The table is fully extendable and has three additional leaves which can be added or removed by using a special wind out mechanism which still has the original winding handle. The leaves can be easily added or removed as required and stored away when not needed. This antique dining table is a superb example of Victorian craftsmanship and is raised on four hand carved turned and fluted bulbous tapering legs. Original brass cup castors terminate each leg. This wonderful antique dining table is sure to make a profound impression in any room and will impress your dinner guests. Condition: As is evident from the photographs, this antique dining table is in splendid condition having been fully restored in our workshops. About Flame Mahogany Flame mahogany has long been prized by master cabinet makers for the beauty of its grain and durability of the wood. Thomas Sheraton, the famous 18th century furniture maker once said that mahogany was "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." It became the wood of choice for fine furniture making and particularly for what are now antique dining tables, throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. As a point of interest, the flame figure in the mahogany is revealed by slicing through the point where the face of the branch joins another part of the tree. Winding Mechanisms for extending tables The winding mechanism for this antique dining table would have been a new invention when the table was first made. Samuel Hawkins first applied for the patent for the screw expander mechanism on June 6th 1861. His business was taken over by a young machinist named Joseph Fitter in 1864 who went on to provide winding mechanisms for extending tables as well as screw expanders for other applications such as piano stools from his workshop in Birmingham, England.
