Manufactured by the Calvin Furniture Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Original clean surface throughout, there is a rich and glowing patina that makes the table visually attractive with a beautiful teak surface. The rectangular top with telescopic extending action and now lacking the leaf insertions, is raised over eight turned tapering legs joined by stretcher rails, bearing the manufacturer’s label. This elegant dining table is in excellent original condition. The Calvin Furniture Company specialized in making Scandinavian style furniture.
