During the Victorian period of 1837 to 1901, 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 of Victorian tables 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.

I can always be sure that what I see in your sales brochures is what I actually get when it arrives ........ in other words I can buy online in confidence knowing that I will be just as delighted with the purchase when it arrives (which is always exactly on the date that you promise) as I was viewing and ordering it over the internet.
With kind regardsMalcolm Rankin
