About this Piece
A fine replica of Robert Jupe's patented circular extending dining room table in crotch mahogany. The original Jupes tables were manufactured between 1835 and 1840 and are extremely rare, fetching up to nearly $500,000 at auction. The swivel action top is formed of eight spin-out triangular segments with additional leaves to expand the table top which is raised on a substantial centre turned pillar and four turned columns on a concave platform base. The handmade internal capstan action and inset corners are of solid brass construction. The table is accompanied by an appropriate baize lined leaf cabinet.
The taste for replica furniture can be said to have started in England in the 18th c. It is difficult to pin point exactly, because of course designers have always taken influence from something which has gone before. Technically, one might ascertain the Renaissance as the beginnings of the tradition. From this period, designers were taking inspiration from Greek and Roman designs and interpreting them in to furniture. Up until the reign of Queen Anne, the influences on furniture were continuations and refinements of Gothic and Baroque colloquial styles – Queen Anne style being very refined and light. After Queen Anne came George I, and through the reigns of subsequent Georges did furniture become more and more influenced by Neo Classical designs, imported from the continent by the new King, from Germany.
