A Portfolio of Some Previous Restorations
To illustrate some of the various styles
And to show the quality of our finished product
While the tables in these photos have been sold,
We do have similar tables, and in some cases the exact same table,
In our inventory which can be restored for you.
Sanford-Bell & Lahm "Narragansett"
This is another variation of the “Narragansett” style which was the most popular look of the 1890’s. Every manufacturer made their version of this table. This table by Sanford-Bell and Lahm is one of our previous restorations. Notable are the saw-tooth skirts, a hold-over from a previous decade as most Narragansett tables were without skirts. We have another table available for restoration just like this in the 8’ size.
Schwarzman Brothers Narragansett
Yet another variation on the Narragansett style. Note that the leg profiles differ slightly from one maker to another and that this table has a fancy “bead and barrel” molding along the bottom of the rails. We have an eight foot table available to restore, nearly identical to this one.
Attention to detail matters: Pocket leather hand-dyed for an “old-saddle” look and pockets hand-stitched with leather shield folded and fitted. Wood triangle is stained and finished to match table and hangs from vintage hook. Finish is all hand-rubbed to a soft sheen that enhances the grain of the wood. Reproduction brass caps have aged look through chemical patina. rail sights replaced with real ivory salvaged from old piano keys.
