This is a fabulous Vintage Regency Revival dining table by the master cabinet maker William Tillman, Circa 1975 in date.
It is made of stunning solid flame mahogany and is raised on twin “gun barrel” turned columns on quadruple swept reeded sabre leg bases, terminating in brass caps and castors.
These tables were sold (at great expense) by high-end retailers such as Harrods in the 1980s.
The table has two leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion. This makes it a versatile dining table which could seat eight/ten people.
The underside bears the original William Tillman label.
There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this handsome dining table which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection, and a talking point with guests at meal times.
In excellent vintage condition with only wear and tear expected from age and use, please see photos for confirmation. I should mention that the highly polished surface makes it hard to take photos without reflections - we have tried to highlight any damage and imperfections.
Approximate Dimensions in cm:
Height 73 x Width 246 x Depth 107 - Fully Extended
Height 73 x Width 158 x Depth 107 - With both leaves removed
William Tillman was making fine reproduction furniture from the 1970s until his retirement at the end of the 1990s and his work is considered to be of the highest quality and collected throughout the world. It has been sold in all of the famous London Stores including Harrods, Peter Jones and Maples and will almost certainly be considered important antique furniture of the future.
Every piece of furniture was produced with the utmost skill and knowledge to ensure that the finished article would bear the most critical comparison with the original. Whilst the polish used was resistent to heat and water, the finished surface has a wax patination similar to that found on early furniture.
Tillman pieces won the British Furniture Manufacturers, Showpiece of the Year award in three consecutive years.
Thomas Sheraton - 18th century furniture designer, once characterised mahogany as “best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed.” Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called “flame mahogany.”
The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.
