I need help identifying this old table:

by Gail

I'm hoping someone can help identify this table. I can't find anything about it. Posting pics of it to help. It is a double side drop-leaf. It telescopes up & down with pull of cable that's attached to the ring on side of base, seen in pic. It raises to eating height & drops to coffee table height. It is on rollers to move it around. There are no papers left on underside anywhere nor any writings or markings. I believe it's pretty old & am 4th owner according to people I bought it from. Old or newer, I really like, plan to restore top & keep it. Any help most appreciated!

    Hi, It looks like Oak and could be an extending coffee table make in the 50's. "Old Hall" maybe? If a Dining table height it could be a Sutherland Table or a Pembroke Table?

      It raises TO dining table height & also lowers to coffee table height. I will take a look at the brand names you gave me & see if they made any tables like this. Thank you!

    Gail, here are some videos that may help you with your unusual table. Also look up "Eastgate."

    I don't have a clue either. But it is a great find and so unusual! A great piece to own for sure. I'm going to do a little research, too, to see if I can find anything about it.

      Thank you. Most appreciated!!!

      I've looked on u-tube to no avail yet.

    So pretty, unique, and versatile. A real keeper!!

    Hello again, I said Old Hall but should have said "Old Charm" - Sutherland and Pembroke are types of table. Maybe look up Rise and Fall Table? Good luck!

      TY. I'll try that search. I appreciate your help. I'm keeping this table no matter what kind it is not it's age. I love it.

  • Gail Gail on Dec 15, 2018

    THANK YOU Johnavalance82!!! You sent me in right direction. My table is a Pembroke Walnut table. What a true find I was lucky enough to get. I will revive/restore table top & it's definitely a keeper!!! I've actually had this table for a few years but never able to find out anything about it. I'm so happy, it's Christmas all over again with this table!!!

    THANKS AGAIN John!!!

    Hometalk people are the BEST EVER!!!

      Hello again, Just had another thought about your table. It might be worth looking a PRIORY Furniture. They made similar style furniture! Sorry brain keeps digging..........

  • Gail Gail on Dec 17, 2018

    Thank you. I looked & they have nothing even remotely similar but I appreciate your effort & suggestion. I truly did look at Priory. I'm sure it's Pembroke.

    I am glad someone was able to help you. It is truly unique and a super table to have. Good luck on your restoration and post when complete.
