Vintage D. R. Dimes tiger maple dining table with porringer corners and 2 shaped and fitted leaves. Measures 72 inches long, 40 inches wide and 29.5 inches high. The leaves are each 14.5 inches long. When the leaves are attached, the table measures 101 inches long. Very good original condition with some surface use marks, which are to be expected and are commensurate with its age. The two leaves were always stored so they are a tad darker than the talbe. D.R. Dimes no longer makes hand crafted tables like this one. Seats 8 with the leaves and 6 without the leaves.
