A note regarding Georgian pedestal dining tables :

 

The pedestal table followed the D-ended table (with multiple legs) about 1790, thereby ending the difficulty of seating around legs.  During the Regency period, the frieze was added around the edge, again impeding knee placement.  During the late Regency period, the knees became a bit overly prominent. As a "true Georgian table", this form with the clean edge and simple downswept legs had a very short period of manufacture. 
It's popularity is such that this form is much reproduced, much assembled,
and more often than not altered.  In addition many have been cut down from the original size,
either to fit smaller mid-20th century dining room -- or to eliminate edge damage.

This table has not suffered from any alteration of form.

One leaf is larger and likely later; however, the  timber and grain is very well matched, suggesting original.

  

We have been trying to purchase such a table (in this country) for 7 years.
I am told by those who have long specialized in Georgian tables
that perhaps as few as 10% of the period dining tables offered today
are without alterations, the most common being a change of pedestals
.

Note above the subtle subtle horizontal age "ripples" in the dense timbers that transform a piece of furniture into something almost "sculptural".
