During the Edwardian period dating between 1901 to 1910, Antique Edwardian Tables were at the height of fashion with earlier influences being introduce like the Chippendale ball and claw foot or the Hepplewhite tapering leg with spade feet. Edwardian tables were popular in the Dining room, as dining and entertaining was a big part life during this period. Several different designs were made to accommodate this, from the large extending dining table to the smaller draw leaf design. Small circular occasional lamp tables in fine woods and decorative inlays were made to be dotted around the home for many different uses. Inlays used would include shell or sun burst designs along with cross-banding and stringing in ebony, Satinwood or Boxwood. The Edwardian cabinet makers choice of timber was either solid American Walnut, Oak or more commonly used Mahogany as they were readily available. Furniture from this period was starting to be mass produced as the introduction of new wood working machines helped to speed up production. Tables were still built to last and solid enough to be used on a daily basis and you can see many superb examples available today with a distinctly elegant look. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
