2 Pillar Mahogany Dining Table by William Tillman

A superb quality 20th century solid mahogany and crossbanding 2 pillar dining table by William Tillman. Two pedestal dining table with two original D-shaped end-sections and two original leaves on baluster shaft and quadripartite stand with four downswept legs ending on brass castors.

Provenance: Windleshaw House. Windleshaw House is a bespoke Arts and Crafts family home designed and built between 1906 and 1908 by one of the period's renowned innovators, William Arthur Smith Benson, as his own home. Benson studied Classics and Philosophy at Oxford and combined his love of art and engineering by serving an architectural apprenticeship. Sir Edward Burne-Jones, the Pre-Raphaelite painter, encouraged his creative flair and through him he met William Morris. Benson began making and selling his metal work including lamps and teapots, mostly in copper and brass, to great acclaim and his work is exhibited at the V&A museum. Incidentally the house was built by WAS Benson for himself and his wife Venetia. Benson was a friend of Burne-Jones and Wiliam Morris and moved in those circles, in fact Charles Rennie Mackintosh visited Windleshaw and did his famous painting of spurge while there. Benson had his own factory but also went on to run the William Morris business. The V&A has lots of Benson items.

Anthony Short Antiques first opened an antiques gallery 21 years ago in Antwerp. I am following my father's footsteps, having been in the antiques trade for more than 50 years in Knokke-Zoute, Belgium.

In 2008, I decided to move with my family to Petworth in the UK and left my successful shop in Antwerp to start up a whole new adventure.

In June 2008 I started first dealing in antiques from our small premises in East Street, Petworth. Having looked for some time, I found a large showroom nearby the Market Square in Petworth, ideally suited to display my large stock of antique furniture and works of art.

It was now time to start another new challenge, as I have decided to open a shop in the heart of Bruges, Belgium. The new gallery is located in the centre of Bruges on the Burg, opposite the Town Hall and The Basilica of the Holy Blood.  I still live and work in the UK and clients are welcome to view items by appointment.

I will continue to attend my usual antique fairs on the continent, the Art Nocturne Knocke Fair, Eurantica in Brussels and Antica in Namur to keep in contact with my loyal clientele. "It is thanks to them that I am where I am today!".

I hold a large and varied collection of 18th and 19th century quality antique furniture, featuring fine antique mahogany furniture of the Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods embracing designs by Chippendale, Sheraton and Hepplewhite, featuring fine walnut furniture of the Queen Anne period, English and Continental Oak and Country furniture, decorative antique objects, antique prints and antique silver.
