Oak Parlor Table

Just right for a tea table, this oak parlor table (oak lamp table) with its original finish and the dings of long time use, came home with us from an estate sale with a difference. The entire household contents were included in the sale to the new owners of the house and the new owners held a house clearance sale. No sad emotions, just commerce.
I posted about an earlier oak parlor/lamp table that we found in pieces and DH rebuilt here and here.

This table goes so well with the embroderied fall leaves table cloth from my vintage covers collection.
Close up views of the legs and the original finish.
The fun is in the dressing and making vignettes is always a treat.
One more for fun...
I love the look of the marbled and burgandy covered books and the metal silver napkin ring and thimble on a paper holder in the mini cloche but my favorite thing this week is my Bue Roses double marked Paragon cup and saucer. It stays on my Welsh dresser - this is its first appearance in a vingette.

  16. My daughter just bought a table like this one. Hers has claw feet with a glass ball on each foot. I'm sure you will enjoy your new find. So many uses for a table this size.

  18. Your table is very much like one I have! My aunt gave it to me after my uncle died -- it was the only thing he had that was his mother's. He had refinished it so, even now so many years later, it still looks lovely! I didn't know they were called parlor tables though!

  23. I love that table! My grandmother had a table like that and I have always wanted one. Luckily I recently found one on CL for a very reasonable price. It has much more "alligatoring" (as I call it) to the legs, and the top had a lot of water stains. It is in line for a makeover, but I am so excited to have a piece that reminds me of my childhood and my lovely grandmother.
