Hello
Thank you for making your question to JustAnswer. My name is*****'m an Antiques Expert and I will try to help you with your particular inquiry. Please, don't hesitate to contact me any time or to make follow up questions if needed.

Could you provide a picture of any metal part-nail, screws..etc-of the furniture?

Also, could you provide a picture of the manufacturer label or mark?

Thanks

Table is in use this week. Will provide pictures of marks and extension mechanism over the weekend. Only new info--it seems to extend to 11'4" max. I was wondering if the mechanism was made by N J John and provided through catalog mail-order or sales rep to local craftsmen. Did such things ever happen? The five legs are identical S-curves, and the middle one looks odd to say the least, particularly when the table is not fully extended.Charles in Cincinnati

Good morning,

I am unsure as to why this question from March has suddenly reappeared. Are you still looking for assistance?

I have never received any comment, assistance, answer, or value of any kind.
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I see that, and I have no idea why! It just popped onto the screen today, hasn't been there since March. Would you like me to address it now, or close it out?

I would still like an answer.

OK. The problem is that I have four shots of the mechanism, and none of the overall table. Can you upload one?
