Question
Table
Table  
Hello
You know the date of fabrication? Or the name of the table? This is a unusuel table style for Walter Wabash ?

Thank a lot

Jean-Marc Reynolds

Answer
Jean Marc - It is an unusual style for Walter of Wabash because Walter of Wabash made only table slides, not entire tables. Walter slides were slides were use by a large number of manufacturers.

The table is a fold over, swing leg extension table. It appears to be from the 1950s.
