English Sheraton Flame Grain Mahogany Double Pedestal Dining Table Cross Banded with Rosewood Hand Made in England. Available for Pre-Order, 5 Month Lead Time.

The table is a hand made bespoke English reproduction and available as a pre-order. The table is custom made for us in England and will have a 5 month lead time. A hand crafted Sheraton style flame grain mahogany dining table from Great Britain cross-banded with rosewood. This table is a copy of an original antique table from a private collection in England. Please notice the rounded corners and the reeded edge of the top. The surface features an extraordinary array of flame grain mahogany with a bold pattern. When this table was originally created the emphasis was on the beauty of the imported and expensive mahogany with its extremely warm colouration in the timber as well as the slender proportions of the top. The innovation of this table in the eighteenth century was the elegance and lightness of the proportions in contrast with earlier tables that had a much heavier feel. The table stands upon two turned column legs that each have three legs that splay outward from each column. This affords the most flexible amount of seating while providing the maximum amount of support. An interesting feature of each leg is the brass caster at each end. The purpose of these is twofold. They provide protection to the timber if the leg is hit by a foot or cleaning implement and in the days before electricity the gleam of the brass reflected the fire and candle light available in the room and enabled a person to see where the end of each leg was located. The finish of this table is done by hand and has a mellow and warm glow similar to an antique table as opposed to a highly reflective new looking finish. Although this type of table was created over two centuries ago it continues to exude graciousness and hospitality and paired with comfortable chairs creates a memorable setting for a wonderful dinner. Measurements include two 20" leaves. Table is 80" long with no leaves and 100" long when one leaf is used.
