19th century solid mahogany drop leaf dining table found at a local North Carolina estate.
This heavy table has 2 large leaves that fold up and a gate leg swings out to support them from below.
It stands on 6 beautiful turned spindle style legs and has a very worn aged patina which only 150 years of use can bring.
These kind of tables would have originally been used as a dining table but they also make a great card/game table, hall table, side table or desk. They are making a big come back due to their versatility and practicality in today's home.
Like most antique furniture this table is not without it's flaws. There are marks and wear on top with a very old, aged veneer repair which is hardly noticeable. There is also some minor damage and wear by the hinges probably from excessive use. Later metal hinges have been added to the gate leg to replace the original worn wooden hinges. The legs also have some wear. All of this is shown in the pictures and as you can see it is still a fabulous looking piece.
None of the above mentioned flaws effect the tables functionality in any way. It is in solid, sturdy condition and the flaws are reflected in the price.
Dimensions: width 45 1/2", depth when folded 20", length when open 53", height 29".
