    Does anyone know what this antique table is, or was? It has vintage metal wheels and a wooden partition in the middle of the table. I thought that maybe it was a dough/bread making table, but I haven't found anything like it online.

      Ping Pong? But the divider looks too tall. The first office cubicle - sorry. I think some kind of farming device. Wonder if it is missing some turners on the sides - three holes in a line.

      Post a picture of the end view down the table proper. Side view says little. I would say vintage as opposed to being an antique.

      What is size ?

      Thank you for your comments. When my sister took the picture, we didn't have in mind to post it online. So, sorry the view is only a side view. The table is in my mom's storage unit about 60 miles from here. I won't be able to get another pic for probably a couple weeks. I'll post more pics at that time... and, fhrjr2, I wasn't sure to say it was antique or vintage. What circa or dates define each term? Thanks again.

      Oh, from memory, it is about the size of a coffee table. Maybe about 5' long x 2' wide and appx 2' tall. As far as I remember, the divider in the middle is solid. It is also really snug, but looks like it used to be able to slide upwards.

      My money is on a laundry table. Mount a hand-crank wringer in the middle with tubs on both sides - one for hand washing the clothes and the other to put the wrung-out garments in. I've got one that folds up that we use for seasonal decorating. Holds pumpkins at the moment. Mine is a bit taller, though - about 3 feet.

      I would agree with Pencil about this being used for laundry tubs and a wringer. These usually were not painted just varnished and sometimes had a makers company name screened on them. Very unique!

      Okay, that might just be what it is Pencil and Rustfarm. I never would have guessed it to be for wash tubs and a wringer, but that makes a lot of sense. It explains why it was never painted too. Thanks for your input!
