A super late Victorian wind-out extending dining table in quarter-sawn oak and made by Selbat. With a rectangular top with canted or cut corners and an ovolo moulded edge it stands on four turned and reeded tulip shaped legs with brass caps and rare wooden castors. This versatile table is a compact 3ft 6.87in deep x 5ft 5.37in long when closed but extends to a maximum length of 11ft 9.25in by means of a Joseph Fitter ‘screw expander’ winding mechanism and strong mahogany runners. Any number of the leaves can be used and the table will seat up to 14 people if using all four leaves.
With a good deep golden colour it has been recently polished and waxed by hand using traditional materials. Medullary rays from the quarter-sawn cut of the oak produce the attractive golden ‘tiger grain’ pattern. The wooden castors are very unusual to find and may be laburnum wood which is very hard. With maker’s label to the underside for ‘SELBAT DINING TABLES’ and stamped ‘B9017’ to the runners. There is a small area of repair to one edge of the top at an end.

Please feel free to contact us for more information or photos, we have many more photos on file for each item but can only upload a limited number.
When buying it is important appreciate antiques have long histories of daily use and as such, over time they gain minor scratches, marks, knocks, shrinkage splits, signs of old woodworm, lifts and losses to veneer, which combine with care and years of polishing to create an individual character and patina. We describe the main flaws and those that fall outside of this bracket but cannot describe each marks separately and therefore suggest you do take the time to request extra photos. We do offer a 14 day money back guarantee if you are unhappy with your purchase but cannot refund the return shipping cost. If you are not sure please do not buy without clarifying or take the view that the only way to have it as near to new as possible is to have it fully and comprehensively restored.
For delivery we use a small carrier experience in carrying antique furniture. Delivery is usually within 31 days and the carrier will make arrangements with you directly. We can provide contact details of other carriers if required.
