This table is one of my friend Josie's many pieces of folk art that I got a picture of before it was whisked away to California. I find it completely adorable, especially those legs.
The top lifts off and on the inside of the apron, its maker has told its story.THIS TABLE WAS NOT MADE IN A FACTORY ~ IT WAS MADE BY FREDERICK A HEUSER IN ROCK HILL SC (?) FROM SECOND USE PINE TEXTILE MACHINE CRATES ??? THAT HOLD IT TOGETHER ARE ??? BLACK GLASS ?? WALNUT PEGS ???
I couldn't make out the entire description -- the wood is rough and the writing is hard to read. There is a date - 1994.
The little table makes me think of the quilts of Gee's Bend -- making something marvelous out of leftovers.
