The Table

So here it is. Like the chairs, it's marked Pennsylvania House, but the table has the additional identifying stencil "Lewisburg."  I guess it's entirely possible that the original owner bought the table and chairs together, but the scale seems a bit off. At any rate, it's a very nice table. Someone started to restore it, but they obviously abandoned the project and eventually the set found a new home at the Salvation Army. I think $90 for the whole shebang was a very good deal. The three leaves expand the table to a whopping 96 inches.

I'm still undecided about whether or not I'll keep it. I could probably sell the table for what I have in the whole set or at least half of what I have in the set. The guilt of not waiting for half-price Wednesday would certainly be alleviated if I were to go that route. Truthfully, I am becoming rather attached to the behemoth.
