What a find! A lovely antique bird's eye maple tuckaway (tuck-away) handkerchief table that's --- only 3.3"--- wide when completely folded. --- It is a corner table with 1 leaf open and a nice card table or lamp table or whatever when both leaves are open. Excellent construction from sturdy maple, the folding legs have brass hardware to latch it in place when open. In fact the hardware is all original brass or iron. Label on the underside says "L F Dettenborn Woodworking Co. Hartford Conn." About 75-110 years old.

Approximately 28"" square x 26"" high. Very good condition with nice finish. Slight discoloration near a corner (see left side of 1st pic) not very noticeable unless you look for it. A couple of very small veneer repairs quite normal in this type of antique furniture. These are all normal conditions for antique furniture. This table has been lightly re-varnished and ready to display.

An unusually shaped occasional table. --- Highly decorative and very functional for a unique look. The rich birds eye top goes well with almost anything. --- Excellent example of good New England Connecticut occasional furniture. A quiet beauty!
