SOLD! Lovely Dining Table & 6 Chairs (see next blog for matching hutch)


Timeless, elegant and very solid, this dining room set is GORGEOUS!

The table is a traditional double pedestal design made of solid wood – none of that fake particle board stuff.  Without the 3 leaves, it readily seats 6.

Beautifully crafted and supported by detailed double pedestals, the table features three expandable 15″ leaves and pairs exquisitely with its matching upholstered chairs. Perfect for gatherings and entertaining, this set is ideal for elegant formal dining, as well as everyday, more practical “boardinghouse reach” meals with the family.

Definition of “boardinghouse reach”:
across fellow diners for food instead of asking them to pass it. For example, At holiday meals when the whole family is gathered, Dad always scolds at least one child for his boardinghouse reach. This term alludes to the formerly common boardinghouse practice of seating all the residents at one large table and to the rudeness of those who simply reached across others to help themselves. Heard less often today, it is not quite obsolete. [c. 1900 ]

Table Dimensions: 62″L x 42″ W x 30″ H
Chair Dimensions: 20″ W (at the widest point) x 20″ D x 42.5″ H (back).  The captain’s chairs are 22″ W at their widest point.
Seat Height: 18.5″, Seat Depth: 15.5″
Set includes: One (1) table with three (3) 12″ leaves, Six (6) chairs, including Two (2) captain’s chairs

Other:  The table and chairs do have some minor scratches and dings, as shown in the photos.  (The white areas in some of the photos is flash glare, not an imperfection in the table!)

Price: Just $300.00 at Heritage Collectibles.

There is a wonderful matching hutch described in another blog, which is $400.00.

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned.  Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
