This table was imported from Sweden to the United States by Eileen Lane Antiques in the 1990’s.  The table dates from the mid to late 1800’s and is constructed of solid Nordic birch, birch veneers and fir.  While the tabletop itself is veneered with choice, book-matched and hand-cut veneers, the matching leaves were probably created after the fact.   Original leaves from the period were almost always created of raw unfinished wood, which normally warped as they were unsealed.  This was a time before placemats, when a blanket was thrown over the table before a tablecloth was placed.  At some later point, the table must have been sent to a master cabinetmaker who created the perfectly matching leaves which you see, an impressive feat.
