    Another set of pictures. This is what the underside looks like. As I stated in my first set of pictures, this isn't one of Meek's more elaborate creations, it's why I believe it's one of his first creations.
    My second believe is; back in that period of time when cabinet making was a sense of pride, and dedication to the art, the cabinet makers did not copy each other's work. More importantly, copied features down to the minute detail; that was highly frowned upon.
    If you are skeptical about the information I have presented, please do a search on "Meek's & Son's table on live auctioneer's" or "Kovels" website. That was listed for sale back in July 2014, and look at that bottom feature located on the end right below the drawers. You will also see in that table similar structure, curved lines and scrolls.
    When I first began using collectors weekly, this table was my first posting; I did a poor job getting adequate pictures out, and when I received feedback I didn't agree with , I reacted poorly, and I am truly sorry for that. Now I would like a second chance on my table, please!

      I don't see a lot of age on this one:

      - minimal age to pine drawer interior
      - dovetails look machined (all the same size)
      - stencil shows that this was part of a large set with at least 10 drawers
      - large brass hinge on drop leaf holder is not 19th century

      I'd think it is mid 20th century at the earliest.

      It is nice an solid wood construction.

      Here is a piece that I posted on here:

      http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/100745-1830s-american-single-drawer-pembroke-d

      Take a look at photos #2/ #3 to see what age looks like on wood. Compare it to the bright appearance of your piece.
