September28th2011Hello,

I’m pleased to offer this English Regency tilt top dining table circa 1810-30 (45″ x 45 1/2′, 29″ Tall). This is a very recent local purchase. Its generous size should seat eight with no difficulty in chair placement. The top is reeded at the edge with slightly rounded corners. The stem is well turned and rests on four saber legs with reeded detail to the top surfaces. The feet are brass and fully reeded. Two huge mahogany planks with crotch grain form the top with only a minor shrinkage crack. The stem and the legs are unbroken and with a typical hidden and original wrought steel reinforcement below.

The elegant pair of brass candelabra is 19th century French and heavy cast with hand worked detail. The six curving brass arms terminate the pedaled candle holders and are filled out with prisms below upper tiers of prisms. Height 23 1/2″ Diameter 14″. At one time, these were drilled for electricity and could be wired again if you choose so.

May I answer further questions or provide more detailed images? We are eager to hear your specific requests.

Best regards and thanks

-Bob
