We have an antique Louis Phillipe Style Table

Customer Question

We have an antique Louis Phillipe Style Table circa 1860 brought back from Geneva,
Switzerland in 1992. The table seats 12/14 with four leaves.It closes to a small size perfect for a bridge game.It has a pedestal base but legs drop down on either end when you put the leaves in and want to expand the table.
There are ten matching chairs.The seats were recovered for fabric color only 8 years ago...all in almost perfect at least very good condition.
Of no consequence...we paid 10,000 USD for the table and 6,000 USD for the chairs in
1988 or 1990.
It is also a wide table so you can have a lot of candles,decorations,etc.We have been leaving an old Chinese Punch Bowl in the center when not in use.
Thank you for your help.
