This is a couple pieces of an intact 9-piece dining room set I have. It's where we eat the family meals. As much of the time here, equaled to what time we spend doing the same in the breakfast room. I have the table, the buffet, china cabinet and six chairs with one being an arm captain chair. The burl inlay on two of the pieces (cabinet & buffet) is gorgeous. I'm told that having the entire "intact set" that was made in the early 1900's, is a rare bird indeed.

I would have taken some pics of the other pieces but I have "tax time" papers all over the top of the table and buffet, and even a couple of the chairs. I did find a pic of a view of most of the table before I trashed it with papers but would like to show a view of the leaf extension along with the intricate leg work and bracing underneath the table and of course the buffet.

I bought the table and the rest of the set, which included a very nice custom made pad from an individual that was in a "moving, must sell quickly" situation approx 12-15 years ago. The seller actually had a person there at her house that was waiting to see if I was going to show up to pay the remaining balance from being there earlier and having gone to rent a truck to transport the furniture home. This potential rival buyer had offered $300 more than our earlier pre agreed to price. When I found this out, I added an additional $100 to the price out of gratitude for the lady keeping to our original verbal sales agreement. Then when I became divorced, this set and its future "whereabouts" was again "center stage". But fortunately, although negotiations were tense and somewhat heated, it was I that prevailed on this group of furniture. But of all I have, the other half got some equally nice pieces when the final negotiations were ultimately decided.

Damn, I hate this "tax" time of year.

    Oh also, I'm not gonna wait til my tax papers are all finished & cleaned up. (I may file an extension lol) I'm gonna at least post a pic of the regular chair (1 of 5) along with the arm "captains chair" in a post later today. Thanks guys for taking the time to look and for your comments. I appreciate it.
