This table has obviously seen better days and I'm not looking to sell, but I would like to know more about it. It was given to me by my aunt who has had it for "forever." My mom remembered seeing it at my aunt's vineyard in the early 80s but it was old then. Some internet research has brought up the possibility it is an oak Jacobean style draw-leaf table?
As for size, I forgot to measure it when it was light out, but it would probably only seat 4 even with the leaves out. There is not much finish left on the top, but the close up of the leg shows what color it used to be. It also seems to have been sold at auction some time in the past, there are stickers under the leaves. I treasure it as a gift no matter the age or value, but I would like to know more about its history. Thanks for any help!

I also wanted to add that on the underside of the tabletop near the pins that drop into holes in the crossbrace, is the number 222 impressed into the wood. that number is next to each pin.

Your table is Empire Revival. circa 1890's but appears to be later 1920's.
