Circa 1900 Brooks Brothers Antique Dining Table


Yesterday a reader alerted me that currently on eBay there is a table from Brooks Brothers’ Madison Avenue flagship that dates from 1900.

Although the listing describes it as a work table, it’s also possible that it was a display table on the sales floor, as for many years Brooks displayed suits, jackets and trousers on tables rather than racks. Either way, the suggestion that it would make for a dining table is a good one.

Eight feet long and believed to be made of walnut, the table has a buy-it-now price of $6,000.
