Robert Jupe's table is one of the most novel designs of the 19th Century. This table is hard to beat for sheer ingenuity. This table was largly built throughout the 19th century, the majority by Gillow's of Lancaster.
By rotating the apron, the arms throw out eight 'pie' like leaves on glides to allow parallel leaf inserts, thus forming a circle of 84".
The concept of this table was so successful it has continued to be made throughout the 19th century.
The design has now been revived by us, after many years of restoring original tables and working with Jupe's plans.
Martin Dodge is today making the exact same table as Jupe, with additional varieties of design and bases.
