Description

In 1835 the London upholsterer Robert Jupe of 47 Welbeck Street, Cavendish Square, patented a design for 'an improved expanding table so constructed that the sections composing its surface may be caused to diverge from a common center and that the spaces caused thereby may be filled up by inserting leaves or filling pieces'. The first tables were produced between 1835 and 1840 in partnership with the cabinetmaker John Johnstone of New Bond Street and were stamped Johnstone, Jupe & Co. London. In 1840 Robert Jupe dissolved the partnership and subsequent examples were signed by Jupe only.  Several versions of Jupe tables are illustrated in C. Gilbert, The Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture, Leeds 1996, figs.530-35.
