I bought this table today for $65.00. The girl who sold it to me said it had been in her mom's kitchen for as long as she could remember. She didn't know anything about the missing leaf and didn't know it had one. When I got it home, I pulled it out and saw Buffalo Hardware Co Patented 18? ( it may say 1868) And some other words that I couldn't make out. It has what I think says, 1880 stamped on it as well, but its very hard to read. The castors on the bottom say Bassick. I was wondering if anyone could tell me approximately how old the table is and what kind of wood is it made from? Thanks so much!

    it looks link butternut to me which is more in line with how these were done in the late 1880-90s. this was a production made table usually accompanied with 2-5 leaves.
    I cannot read the writing in the photo so i cannot comment on that.
    we see these tables in walnut and butternut-butternut is often called white walnut as the grains are similar. legs and apron may or may not be the same wood, i cannot tell in the photo, you will have to determine that.
