Made to Last

I was scanning some old pictures to send to a friend and came across these of me, my brother and the feeding table that my mother got when my brother was a baby. These old pictures I put in an old day planner as an album. The date on the edge of the photo is Aug '56. Has anyone else seen a feeding table like this?

I still have the table and it has been used by my children and my grandchildren. It needs to be repainted again, but otherwise is in excellent shape. I searched the Internet, but have not been able to find another one like it. It has no manufacturer name on it anywhere that I can find, either.

The "chair" back removes and repositions in the hole to make a juvenile table. The seat folds up into the bottom so it is out of the way of little legs sitting in chairs. The legs also fold like a card table for storage.

Ive never seen one... But how cool is that!? Would have loved to have had one... My mom used the same wooden high chair that my Grandfather had as a child... Still sits in her kitchen, after only a bit of tornado damage...
