Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to size. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only), typically 4-6 weeks, depending on your location.
This item is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. Some separation between the table top planks, as to be expected over time. Also noted, there are some new replacement screws underneath the table, which make it sturdier and more stable. Repairs to splits on the upper side post supports, which again, are reinforced and sturdy for another 100 years.
I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
