This is a fairly standard issue Victorian extending dining table; it would have been quite appropriate for Teddy Roosevelt had a similar table, as did many people at the higher levels of society. Unfortunately, the market is not what it used to be for this kind of thing and increasingly fewer people dine formally or have dedicated dining rooms anymore.
