    Hi All and @James Conrad
    A while ago there was a post about a table and a link was posted with some examples, I thought one looked like mine, mentioned it and James asked if I would post some photos, so now it is a few months later and here are the photos. I'm also including photos of another table that I'm wondering about. I'll have to break the photos up over several posts.
    James, the first one is the one I was thinking looked like the example that was posted. The top is 21 1/2" x 27 3/4"(not including the side leaf pieces), stands 28"H, the 2 side leaf/pieces are 9" each.
    I seem to think I posted this on the ebay boards many years ago, and going by memory which might be a little off, I think it was described as a pub table, I can't remember the date given, the side pieces aren't original, had woodworm:)

    here is the other table. Not sure if I asked about this or not, if I did I don't remember, sorry.
    The top is 17 1/2" x 23 3/4" x 1" and has a bit of a wow in in, stands 29 1/4"H. The sticker is maybe an inventory or auction sticker

    Well, on the first table I am betting/guessing, English, late 19th century. It has several styles all rolled into one which was common in the late victorian period. The bun feet & X stretcher are william & mary style with the ball turned legs in the 17th century style and the drawer has a chippendale pull.
    Very attractive drop leaf table (at this point) in solid quarter sawn oak, nice figure on the oak.
    I have no idea what they call these tables in England, wait for others to post. In america, without the drop leafs, it would be called a "tavern table".

    The 2nd piece is a light/work stand, mid 19th century, american, Sheraton or federal period.

    The first table appears to be English Oak. I was thinking mid to late 1800s. I think the top has been reworked. The planks don't match the drop leaves. Thinking the planks maybe the part that was replaced - only a guess on my part.
    James what do you think?


    Hope it was fumigated before putting in your house. Those are worm holes.



    The second looks American - will defer to James on that one.

    thanks James:) Tavern table rather than pub table is what I was told, and yes, English.
    this is my favourite table, just has a nice look about it:)
    thanks Cluttered:) I didn't fumigate but haven't seen any evidence they are still alive in there, or at least I hope not, I live in a log house, they would have a field day here.
    Yes, replaced parts on the top part, I was thinking the side/drop parts were the replacements?

    Absolutely!
    I think the leafs have been added, i don't think they are original to the "pub" or "tavern" table.

    Didn't see cx's "side pieces aren't original"
    That's what I get for only looking at pictures and just skimming text.
    Sorry.:oops: LOL:shame:

    For 1 thing in looking at hinges, they are not "mortised" into the table or leaf so that tells me someone converted the pub/tavern table into a drop leaf.

    It wouldn't be known as a pub / tavern table here, far too delicate, those stretchers would last about 5 minutes. and they don't have drawers.

    The woodworm is well gone, those are exit holes.

    Yeah, the legs are Sheraton for sure, popular here in the federal period

    thanks Dave, after the question about fumigating I was a little concerned that maybe they could be alive:)

    Yes the wood on the second table is pine. I like that one best too! :cat:
    Looks like someone bunkered it up with (walnut?) wood blocks underneath at some point too.

    I think perhaps just the 2 end "drop leaves" were either added or replaced at one point. I noticed the position of the support bracket looks like it was altered.

    "Tavern Table" is a generic term here in USA, they are more accurately "side tables" and most homes in america during the 18th century had 1 or more of these small portable tables, very handy around the kitchen/house. Obviously some were used in taverns, hence the name, very handy to have small portable tables in a tavern.

    Here is a C 1750 Cherry base, single board pine top american "tavern table" that i have that never saw the inside of a tavern in it's life, i am pretty sure. Still, when i bought it, that's what they called it.
