A 19th century mahogany extending dining table with eight fitted leaves and winders on each end, supported by turned legs with castors, 490 x 167 cm *The mechanism is stamped 'Joseph Fitter, Cheapside, Birmingham'. In 1861 Fitter applied for a patent for an extending dining table and directories list him at this address in 1870. The auctioneers believe the surface to be older than the base. The leaves have been filled in where connecting brackets previously went, this leads the auctioneers to suspect the top is Georgian while the base is later. One piece of timber has detached (see images).
