    Hi all — This bad boy was in my grandma’s house. Like her, it came from Delaware.

    It is gigantic - 53x105x29 - when all together and leaves extended.

    It is comprised of a center piece w 2 gate leg leaves; and 2 end pieces. It can be configured in a number of different ways — but regardless, it is kind of a pain, and you straddle a leg at almost every seating position!

    I know brown is down but had to ask — is there any market for this kind of table, or value beyond the sentimental?

    Thanks! 1CA101E8-2956-45A9-966A-00C36D604C92.jpeg 2A566284-B4FF-4CF5-A4EA-16F19A7E026F.jpeg

    Sheraton, American, guesses mid 19th, it's size hurts it value-wise as formal dining rooms & the furniture that goes in them is not popular at the moment.

    All true. The lack of matching chairs doesn't help. It is, however, a beautiful table. I would think value would be in the low hundreds....maybe $100=$150 in my part of the U.S. Midwest.

    Indeed however, if those Windsor chairs are old (mid 19th), they could very likely be more valuable than the table.

    Is this the type that comes apart making the ends like stand alone almost demi-lune or is it all one piece with tops you put in to extend?

    One of our DR tables was a Hepplewhite table that came apart making two demi-lunes with a drop down leaf that backed to the wall. When fully assembled with all the parts, it was about 60" long.

    Yes — center piece has 2 drop leaves.... 2 end pieces can stand alone or be put together for a smaller table... ingenious!

    And, that HELPS it value-wise.
