There are the draw leaf refectory formats, trestle pedestal base extending with runner systems and perhaps the most produced of all history in the late 19th Century are the classic Victorian wind out extending oak tables. These are in various forms of round, oval or rectangular with influences of the Arts & Crafts, Jacobean and Gothis which were all fashionable during this period.
Built to an amazing quality these extending oak tables are made from solid well seasoned English oak and, with the highly skilled crafstmen of the period, these quility contructions have stood the test of time and offer today the greatrest value for anybody who requires a large, flexible extending table and long lasting quality in sizes from 3 metres and up to 6 metres in length. These tables cannot be reproduced today as simply the timber and cabinet maker costs would have a modern construction costing 2 or 3 times the original antique examples we sell here at Elisabeth James. Also healthy for the planet to recycle rather than fell more forests!
