THANK YOU FOR VISITING

You are bidding on the amazing Leg-o-matic folding table and chairs. This set is a great example of the wonderful craftmanship and originality of the 1950's. In my research I have not been able to find the exact date of manufacturing for this wonderful set, but the original manufacturer's labels and tags give insight into the date of origin for the set. All address on the original manufacturer's lables and tags have no zip codes which places the time of manufactoring post 1950's and pre 1970's. The lables and tags seen in the pictures are the originals for this set and are placed under each of the five pieces in this set. The design of one touch folding and unfolding for the LEG-O-MATIC has past the test of time and is in like new condition. The set is made of a sturdy oak which adds to it's stability. T is abosolutely no wobble in any of the chairs in this set and the table is more stable than my own kitchen table. They don't make furniture like this anymore. This is a great set for the collector of vintage furniture and an exceelent example of post 1950's craftmanship.

HAPPY BIDDING!!!!
