I have a side table that turns into a dining room table with a brace and two rather large leaves. The top folds down upon itself and sits against the wall like a sideboard. Interested in what it is called and its worth. I bought it at a garage sale for $75. It has a little mar on the top when it is closed up, but the inside when opened is perfect. It has legs that have verticle carvings and a top that has outward curved front and sides with square corners. Thanks so much.
Can you find any marks or stamps on its underside? Some pictures of this table may help.
Yes I'd like to see pictures also.
I think this is the type of table I'm interested in purchasing. Would you mind posting photos? And, do you know the name of this style of table?
Sorry confused don't know if yuor talking about the side table that turns into a dining room table or my post by dropleaf that is about the same but on different post. If so look at dropleafs post there are pics but are older so you will have to look for them or go to proper language! Don't want to step on anyones post's.
The first post was posted 2 years ago. I'd be surprised if the original poster would be back. I'm sure you can take over this thread Please do post some pics here too.
My post is under dropleaf for of course table. It can serve two purposes. Can be put upright position at the height of card or dining table 29 1/2 inches tall or down to coffee table height of 17 1/2 inches. There are alot of hinges on the table supports and on the strecher (strecher is two pieces because of being able to move up and down)! It is in a vee shape when up , then straight across when down. Also of course thier are springs under apron of table to help to put in the positions. One dropleaf on each side of middle base measuring 20 inches wide and 13incheslong. The whole table with leafs up measures 48 ihches long and 20 ihches wide. Has beading around top of table and down both sides of strecher pieces. There are no drawers. The feet have lion brass covers and castors. I forgot to add that the leafs are held up by wooden bars that are under the table that you have to slide out. I hope I didn't over do it with infromation. Just glad someone read about my table and maybe be able to find out something, anything! Thanks!
The table I'm looking for, unfortunately, isn't the one shown in your drop leaf photos. I'm sorry. The best example of what I'm looking for is something I found that someone else posted.
I know these pictures aren't very big, but I found them on someone else' post on a site called all experts:
The top of this table can also fold over on itself and turning it into a console table (but thats not shown in these pics)
Yes I realised they were totally different tables when I finally found the site and the pics of the table you were talking about. I like the one you want to buy also.
By any chance, do you know anything about the kind of table I want to buy? For example: what it's called, what period it's from, and where I might best put my efforts into finding one (I'm from Long Island, NY)...
Thanks for any tidbits of info...
