During the Victorian period of 1837 to 1901, the antique Victorian Tables were an essential piece of furniture in all homes. As the middle class started to become more wealthy, more homes were built to fulfil the fast growing housing market. Every home needed lots of different types of antique tables for dining, writing to games playing as this was the height of fashion during this period. Fabulous new features were introduced on Victorian tables from turned legs with brass castors enabling them to be easily moved around, to extending dining tables with a crank handle to make them larger in size with unique mechanisms. Decorative timbers were used from Mahogany to Oak and usually with inlay or carved decoration around the edges and large sets of chairs were made to fit around them. As there was such good skilled, cabinet makers during the Victorian period and superb woods imported from throughout the world, these tables were made to last. This is why there is such a good selection still available today, ready for everyday use. Here at Antiques world, We carefully restore them to a high standard using traditional methods, so they are in beautiful original condition, ready to be placed into your home. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.

- antique furniture used in Lincoln Centre Theatre New York,
Dear Mr. Driscoll,The antique table and chairs arrived last week in perfect condition. I wanted to personally write and thank you for giving us such a reasonable price for the pieces and for arranging the shipping. The whole process was very straight forward and simple and went off without the slightest hitch. I’m just glad we had the time, which in the theatre is something we usually have little of, to plan. The furniture is used in Lincoln Centre Theatre in New York, and these pieces were used in a show called ‘A Minister’s Wife’ A MINISTER’S WIFE is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw’s Candida, it is set in London and is about a love triangle among a Socialist clergyman, Reverend James Morell, his wife, Candida, and Eugene Marchbanks, who, infatuated with Candida, aims to win her love.
Just to say we’re delighted with the table – it’s already had 5 big dinner parties around it and been a huge success. Thank you and also the delivery boys who were very helpful

James,It was with a degree of trepidation that we purchased an oak table from yourselves online without viewing it in the ‘flesh’ so to speak. This is something that we said we would not do but we need not have worried as the experience was very positive. I want to thank you for the smooth transaction from negotiating a discount over the phone to delivery to our home in Portstewart, Northern Ireland. We are very pleased with table that was as described and in excellent condition. It took us an age to unwrap so thorough was the packaging! Once again thank you Driscolls for all your help.RegardsJackie and William
