Note: This table is located in Brookfield CT.
Handsome antique L. & J.G. Stickley solid black cherry wood gate leg dining table from the “Cherry Valley Collection,” launched by Stickley in the 1920s, according to their website, and manufactured in Fayetteville, NY. It is pictured in the StickleyMuseum.com website images in Fayetteville, NY. What makes this table an amazing find (and deal) is the fact that the 2 demilune end pieces are included, which makes the table a long racetrack shape, and if not used that way they can be used as side board console tables for serving. There are no other examples of this table being sold online that include the demilunes, the ones pictured in the museum images.
Apart from being handsome and regal, this particular table is incredibly versatile, and can be used a number of ways: it seats 4, 8, or 10, and as I mentioned, has 2 rounded demilune end pieces that can be used as a table on their own or as consoles elsewhere in the house (and pulled together when needed to create the largest version of the table).
I don’t know the age of the table—it could be anywhere between the 1920s and the 1960s—but we have had it since the 1970s when we got it from an estate collection. The Cherry Valley Collection was heavily advertised in the 1950s with the Colonial revival and the post-war Americana craze. The top was stripped and refinished in the 1970s and has a buttery matte finish. It does not need refinishing but there are a few water marks and blemishes that I feel are fine, but you may want to restore the finish and make the table look sparkling new.
My family has used it for years and it’s a great table for large groups—we’ve had up to 12 around it, and it’s in vintage condition with minor surface and finish wear around the apron, but overall it’s a solid work horse of a table that will last forever.
It’s located in Brookfield, CT on Candlewood Lake, and pick up would be there. The Windsor chairs shown with it are not included, though if you are interested in the chairs they are available.
Measurements: 72" length fully extended without demilune end caps (center section is 27.5" L, and each fold-down section is 22.25" L); add 46" to the length with demilunes—each 23"L X 44" W) installed for a total length of 118"; 30" height overall; 44" width.
