Ball & Claw Oak Dining Table

You can find chairs with traditional "ball and clawfeet" easily, but when was the last time you saw a vintage dining table with the same foot? Rather than the traditional "paw" foot, this table has a well defined talon holding a ball. The curve of each leg is further defined by the molded edge following the curve. This is also a split pedestal style table with the desirable double locking mechanism. One lock opens the table top- allowing up to three leaves to be added. The second lock opens the table base and allows it to split revealing the hidden center leg. Once the base is opened, the full complement of 8 leaves can be added. At this point, your table becomes a 4' 6" by 10' 6" oval capable of seating as many as 14 people. Two of the leaves are skirted to match the table skirt- a vertical grained skirt with a simple bead at the bottom. The balance of 6 leaves are flat for easy storage. This table was originally restored over 15 years ago and has had some recent spiffing up to bring it back to salable condition. It's solid quartersawn top is still beautiful and the base is simply dramatic.

Size ................ 30" Tall x 54" Diameter extends to 126" (10' 6") Circa .................. 1890-1910
