The Saginaw Furniture Company made these expanding dining tables. These were built in the early 1900's untill the 40's in Michigan. The console is 39 1/2" x 20 1/2" x 30" standard table height. The Watertown Slide mechanism pulls out to accommodate up to six leaves, each 15" in width, to create 110 1/2" of dining table. All of the leaves fold in half and store inside the console doors, when not in use. You needn't use all of the leaves so you can customize for any dining or buffet situation. Then, it all stores away into a compact cabinet. I acquired this table form my mother, to whom it had been given by it's original owner in Superior, Wisconsin. It is in very good condition, with some small damage to the bottom edge of the wood on one side due to a careless mover. The pull-out legs of the table are oak, and I believe the cabinet top and leaves are either teak or walnut veneer. I've looked at some wood sample pictures and I cannot quite place it. All the leaves are intact and, as the picture shows, all connecting pegs are still there as well. The cabinet when loaded with the leaves is very heavy. If you want it shipped, you will have to figure out the lojistics. Thanks for your interest.
