Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
I wonder how many miles of dark oak and walnut English paneling there was on Long Island in its heyday?
The paneling looks better than you might expect:http://www.harmonyheights.org/pages/residence.html
That dining table looks curiously small for that room and that type of house.
re: the dining room table -- it looks as if it's some sort of fold-out table -- look at the legs -- the ones which are in front look like three individual legs. Also the table top looks as if there could be one layer on top of another.
Ancient---didn't mean to imply the paneling was ugly--in fact it looks quite handsome---but I was reflecting on just how much paneling all those ye olde Englishe houses on Long Island must have contained---veritable forests leveled.Patricia---the legs, whose turnings are known as barley twists, are designed that way...my own examination sees it as an expansion table, pull-out for leaves to be inserted in the middle.
