This extending pedestal dining table, crafted in the style of George Bullock, echoes the ornate designs Bullock famously created for Napoleon during his exile at Longwood House on St. Helena. Known for his distinct interpretation of the Regency style, Bullock’s influence is palpably felt in the table’s sophisticated form and decorative nuances. The choice of fabulously figured mahogany, accented with single inlaid ebony stringing, showcases a preference for high-quality materials and intricate craftsmanship that Bullock championed during his career.

The table’s oval top, notable for its impressive expanse and richly figured grain, speaks to the era’s fascination with exotic woods and their aesthetic qualities. The ebony stringing—a subtle yet striking detail—provides a visual contrast that accentuates the mahogany’s warm tones. The inclusion of a single leaf adds a layer of practical versatility, allowing the table to accommodate additional guests while maintaining its elegant proportions.

Supported by a sturdy pedestal base, the table features four gracefully curved legs, each adorned with leaf lapets that add a touch of ornamental flair reminiscent of classical motifs. The large cast brass castors not only facilitate easy movement but also reflect the period’s appreciation for both utility and opulence in furniture design. These elements combine to create a dining table that is both a functional piece of furniture and a striking decorative object.
