Antique Breakfast Tables had either Circular or rectangular top sitting on a pedestal base. Fashion at the end of the 18th Century moved away from the long table towards the smaller circular table so you could have a more intimate family meal or dinner party in your breakfast room. These would usually seat four to eight dinner guests and was very popular in the Regency and Victorian periods, made in finer timbers like Mahogany and Rosewood. This type of antique table was easily stored as they could be tilted up using a brass mechanism (called a banjo catch) and fit into a corner of a room when not in use, so was very desirable for some of the smaller houses. This same design was also used for the antique Loo table but was usually oval in shape and in more figured woods like Walnut.  Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
