Vintage Saginaw Furniture Company telescoping buffet table.

I am very pleased to be able to offer for your consideration this very practical, vintage expanding buffet table made by Saginaw Furniture of Saginaw,Michigan.

As child I remember having one of these table in our home. It was a pretty amazing, and extremely practical piece of furniture, specially during the holidays. We would pull it out to it's full length, throw a table cloth over it, and then my mother would proceed to fill the table with all sorts of dishes filled with wonderful things to eat, for the evenings festivities. When the entertaining was done, and the table was cleared, we would restore the table to it's stowed, compact configuration, and like magic the room was restored to a more spacious place.

This table is a very practical, well made piece of furniture. It is made of Mahogany, and Mahogany veneers. In it's stowed configuration, this table is 36 inches wide, 30 3/8 inches tall, 20 1/8 inches deep. This table has 6 leafs, and when fully expanded, the table is 8 feet, 7 1/4 inches long. The expansion mechanism is Hardwood, perhaps Birch or Maple, and Manufactured by the Watertown Slide company, one of the best in the business.

Condition- Aside from some cleaning, and some oiling, this table is in very good condition, the leafs look unused.

If you want a well made, quality vintage American made furniture this table surely fits the bill. Add to the high level of quality, the space saving, practical design of this table, and you have a piece of furniture that will serve you and your family well for many years to come.
