    Peerless Furniture Co., Shippensburg, PA. Started in 1910. I have found very little information on the internet.

    I believe this would be called a library table, but it looks like the writing surface (leather?) has been removed. Also, on the first picture, right side, it appears to be missing the end piece to make it flush with the rest of the table.

    I don't think it had a leather top.
    Think what we see is either dust or mildew. You can see the inlay on the top.
    Think this would be 1920-30ish.

    This would be a good candidate for Howard's Restor-A- Finish and Feed and Wax.
    First use a damp cloth (not soaking wet) and wipe all the dirt and grime off. Then use the Restor., finish off with the Feed and Wax

    I don't think there was leather....there is an elongated diamond shaped inlay. The longer inlaid center section raises up on hinges and the shorter side sections slide underneath it.

    You can't. Only a moderator can move a thread.
    @daveydempsey

    As for the sides going under the top, that is something the English did.
    Not done on American tables that I know of.
