probably New England
Walnut and cherry; Oval top: L. 72 in., W. 60 in.
Israel Sack, Inc. (New York, N.Y.)
The large table has an oval top supported on a frame with a pair of swinging (gate) legs in addition to its fixed legs. All parts of the frame are turned; the legs terminate in "Spanish" feet.

It is believed that the table came from Franklin's New England family home, and was bought in 1923 when Franklin family things were sold in Bath, ME (conversation with Albert Sack, 02/04).
