The large top, suitable for comfortable dining, is constructed of two boards joined by shaped cleats, and pivoting on removable turned pins which are received by the shaped board ends with boot jack cutout, resting on replaced shoe-feet. The board ends joined by seat board, beneath which is a long drawer with turned wood pulls.
(Height: 29.25"; seat height: 17.5"; top: 38.75 by 59".)
The three-board pine top with generous overhang allowing for comfortable seating pivots on rear top-rail and rests on arms with shaped handholds. The handhold rails atop turned and block posts joined by seat above plain apron raised on turned feet. Fantastic scrubbed top and nearly full coverage original dry red paint. (Height: 27.5"; seat height: 16.25"; top diameter: 45".)
The pine top, of generous proportion, is constructed of three wide boards joined by shaped cleats that pivot on wood pins piercing the terminus of arm rests. The top is raised on tapering square-to-baluster and ring turned posts resting on compressed ball feet; legs are joined by plain apron forming seat frame. (Top Diameter: 54"; H: 27")
Featuring a rectangular overhanging top on plain apron containing single short drawer; replaced brass pull; the table is raised on square legs. The desirable dry surface consists of early thinning mustard yellow over original red paint; nice surface.
(One leg was broken (now expertly repaired) at apron; top has worn dry surface, apron and legs display mustard paint craquelure. H: 28.75", top: 37 by 19.5")
The projecting rectangular top veneered in mixed woods on similarly veneered apron contacting two short-drawers is raised on spiral twist turned legs joined by veneered serpentine stretcher; the whole resting on bun-feet. There are a few small losses to veneers, mostly confined to cross-banding and easily restored; feet are old replacements; other repairs mostly confined to underside that do not distract. Considering its age, the condition is outstanding; remarkably the legs and stretcher are fine; William and Mary period brasses appear to be the third set.
(Dimensions: H: 29"; Top: 62.75 by 33.75")

The large overhanging top with shaped cleats is attached to plain apron and secured by original turned pins; table raised on slightly tapering legs.

Castors were added during the table's working life. (Height: 30.5"; Top: 84.5 by 36.5"; top with extensions: 116.5 by 36.5")
Rectangular pinned-top with carved cleats perfectly balanced on beaded apron containing singe scratch-beaded dovetailed long drawer; the whole raised on double-tapered beaded legs. The paint is first and only and remains at about full coverage-including top; wonderful pigment and surface quality.
