I refinished my grandmother's table! I have admired this table my whole life and now it will grace my dining room.

    I know this table is at least 50 years old, but no more info than that. I have searched for one like it (the way the legs are separate from the middle column) so that I may figure out its history, but haven't found anything similar. Help!

      Are the legs connected at the top to a large piece of wood? 2 legs to each side?
      Are there small wooden like balls that the feet sit on? If so, I have one as well.
      It was my Great Grandmothers, who reportedly bought it from the 'Sears and Roebuck'. Maybe around 1910?? I don't really know.
      I've not seen one like mine until I saw yours.
      I'll post pictures of mine so you can see.

      This is not a Sears and Roebuck. What is that cylinder in the middle? Beam me up Scottie?
    3. Kmyofky Kmyofky, 6 years ago
      The cylinder in the middle looks to be a pedestal. Perhaps when the leaf is used the centre of the table doesn't have support, so a pedestal is used?
      I spent a few months looking at old Sears catalogs online and couldn't find this table, so I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't from 'Sears and Roebucks'
    4. KaciKreuzer, 6 years ago
      The legs are attached to a piece of wood that is screwed to the bottom of the table. Both the legs and pedestal are on wooden casters. When the leaf is removed the legs are right around the pedestal. I'll have to check out the Sears lead...because I can't find anything. Thanks!

      Howdy Kaci,

      I bought a similar table at auction in Danville VA to sell in my shop in Pensacola. The only difference in the table I had and the one you have is there was no applied carving on the one I had, the curve of the outer legs was a bit different, and i had no leaves. Now, as to the manufacturer, there was no label on my table so i cannot help you there but from 40+ years in the antiques and restoration business i can say with certainty that the table was manufactured around 1900. You have to keep in mind that at that time there were about 5000 manufacturers in operation in the United States.

      I have a picture of the table I will send to you if I can figure out how.
