This table was made by the Astoria furniture co. in Astoria, Oregon in the early 1900s and sold to a Ross Woodman. The original tag and order number is still attached. This table folds out from the center with a unique system that I've never seen before. I can't find out any thing about this item. I suspect it may have intrinsic or even historical value. Any information that can enlighten me would be appreciated. michaelleedavison@gmail.com

    I have a table with the same sort of leaf setup.It flips out from inside of the table and is never really removed from it.It has slides that allow it to open and they are made by the Perfection Slide Mfg. Co. of Watertown,Wis. I don't know who made our table but believe it was made between 1930-1950.I don't even know if the legs I have are the correct ones for this table.Yours is the first one I have seen with this type of leaf setup.If you know any more please let me know.Thanx,Lingal

    I can't say anything about the maker but I can give you some first hand folk lore as it might be called. Kids did not touch this table. It was called a game table and only brought out when company came over to play cards. Although I once saw it used for a Ouiji Board. The folding center we were told were butterfly leaves.
