Found at the 'junk' shop...

If this table had not had two or three inch chunks out of the enamel, I think I would have had to bring it home.  I would have just lived with the small bits being gone. The chairs are cute though not comfortable, but that table is sturdy.  and there are two little leaves that store under the main table.  You just slide them out.  They are very sturdy, too.  All three pieces could be had for $45.

Too bad about the missing enamel.

mother had one of these, but different legs... they were common in almost every home when i was growing up... that is a really good price for the 3 or even for the table.

An interesting "buy" that would be hard for you to pass up. If the chips bothered, you could also cover it with a linoleum or table cloth.

Cool older table and interesting chairs.

Yep, a neat old table just looking for the next place to live on.

What a shame that you didn't get this - those are some serious chips - but the table is darling.

I don't remember ever seeing a table like this before. Hmmm.

We have to buy a new kitchen table and there are all kinds of 1950s metal reproduction tables for sale for a lot more money! We had to laugh, thinking if only we had saved the ones we and our parents had back then, they'd probably be worth more than we paid for them! We're not getting that kind. Been there, done that ))).
