1880’s Rowley and Hermance Dining Table

rowleyhermancecatalog

This is from Rowley and Hermance’s 1879 catalog. The pin striping is pretty amazing, and typical for pre 1900’s machines, which were often really colorful-then transitioning to basic black after the turn of the century.

Manufactured by Rowley and Hermance Co. of Williamsport Pa, this antique machine dates back to the 1880’s. I was excited to find this machine which had been sitting outside in the hot Utah sun for many years, and had it shipped back by rail car  to 150 miles of where it was born some 130 years ago. It’s perfect as a 8-10′ dining or conference table. Currently shown with 3’x8′ custom resawn antique hemlock wooden top.
