An Extraordinary Scale George II Mahogany and Brass Strung Drop Leaf Table
The oval top supported on turned and tapering legs and pad feet, the eight legs terminating in brass and leather casters.
Unusual for its magnificent scale and proportions (and often colloquially known as a ‘hunt’ table) this oval drop leaf table was designed to allow for the large dining rooms and formal spaces of the great Georgian estates to be cleared for dancing or after dinner entertainment.
A near identical table hails from the Chivas Regal Distillery, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
