Exceptional quality regency dining table in the style of Thomas Hope, circa 1820. The large tilting top rests on a substantial triform base, supported by the most wonderfully carved lion's paws. It comfortably seats six. The column has a concave form and is enhanced by moulded corners flowing into acanthus leaf scrolls. Particularly beautiful is the waterfall figure of the rosewood top, which creates lovely movement. The top also has a crossbanded edge and apron. The hardware is original. A stunning piece.
