A REGENCY MAHOGANY EXTENDING DINING TABLE AND A TABLE LEAF HOLDER

Sold for £1,700


Condition report

The table is 351cm when fully extended. The height to table top is 71cm, height to underside of lowest part of frieze 58cm. The table and leaves have a handful of water marks, minor surface scratches, though no splits or cracks. The castors appear to be original, as are the table leaves. Overall in quite excellent condition.
Note that the spare leaves of this table were for the most part stored in a leaf holder (lot 1445 in this auction) when in the property, so there is a marginal difference in the colour shades.
