I would like you to tell me what you can about this old table that's been in my family for generations. It is a drop leaf table, with extensions (one is inserted in the table in the photos, two more available), six chairs as shown. Probably oak. Chairs have bentwood backs. I would appreciate any information you can supply. Thank you.
