    Very unusual motif on this one. The salt white PORCELAIN enamel top has an ART DECO GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND. This Red & White sweetie is an antique table, exact age unknown but guessing around the 1930s from recollection of the owner born in 1944. The original owners were her grandparents. ALL ORIGINAL, never repainted, and no serious damage. Top and sides are in very good order. The four matching chairs are believed to be the originals purchased with the table.

    About The Manufacturer - INGRAM-RICHARDSON of BEAVER FALLS, PA.

    In 1901, two Englishmen, Louis Ingram and Ernest
    Richardson, turned the fledgling Enameled Iron
    Company of Beaver Falls, PA into the porcelain-enamel
    powerhouse, Ingram-Richardson. In addition to license
    plates, the company made street signs, and signs for
    the big national industries including oil, soap, ice cream
    and others, including companies from overseas. They
    also manufactured panels for building exteriors, as well
    as table tops, refrigerators & stove parts, and other
    products for the home.

    Ing-Rich built plants in three other states as well. The
    17-acre Ingram Richardson site in Frankfort, Indiana, for
    instance, began operations in 1915 and produced
    porcelain enamel frit for steel, cast iron, and other
    porcelain products. At its peak, Ingram-Richardson
    employed over 1000 people. Noted for their durability,
    Ing-Rich became one of the leading producers of
    porcelain enamel products in the U.S. and would
    continue making porcelain products well past the
    porcelain license plate era.

      Love!! Really great!! Each relative in Iowa, Missouri and Virginia has an old porcelain table which has always pained me a little bit because they bought them for Nothing and I can't buy one here in CA. Luckily, they treasure them...I can't remember who has this example with the drawer...I think a Virginia relative. Chairs got beat up didn't they?

      That is a great table. I am tempted to get one like it.
