A beautiful Walnut Octagonal expandable Dining Table, part of the Intaglio collection, designed manufactured by Foster McDavid circa 1970’s. This gorgeous walnut extending faceted Octagon dining table is reminiscent of Harvey Probber designs, remains in original good condition throughout, features beautiful walnut veneers in the top, and walnut inlays to highlight the top and edges of the base and solid walnut to sculpt the pierced octagonal column and faceted base. With walnut inlays to highlight the top and edges of the base and with three matching walnut leaves on a faceted pedestal base. The frame easily expands open with a pull mechanism that runs on metal runners with bearings and runs smoothly with extending telescopic action allowing the table to extend to a full 95 1/4”. When table is extended a pair of tapered legs conveniently drop down on each side from where they are concealed within the tabletop, allowing the table to be stable and relieving any extra weight to the center base. The pierced slats in the base are beautiful sculpted and appear airy and light as a result of the beveled edge of each slat, a most interesting and original form. Fully extended, it becomes a large conference table. Shows minimal signs of wear, the beautiful base is thick and strong, exquisitely constructed, characteristically sleek and functional and exudes an aesthetic beauty as well making it perfect for the modern interior. This is a wonderful table that offers three large walnut leaves changing it from a large size table to a large conference table. Each of the leaves is 15 3/4″″ across, one leaf retains original partial label (Foster McDavid) on underside, making this a versatile piece indeed, built to last the test of time. Good quality and modern style.
