Wood Has Bleached Finish
By Edith B Crumb
If you are wondering what you do with that check you found in the tip of your stocking Christmas morning, here is a suggestion: How about a folding card table and four folding chairs.

An unusually attractive set is of wood throughout, in the bleached finish and the covering of the chair seats and table top is of blue imitation leather- a medium bright blue.

This is unusually comfortable folding chair and at first glance it does not appear to be the collapsible type but only a slight pressure is required to close it to a thickness of approximately  6 inches.

The table, with a double metal support at each corner is substantial and so attractive are all five pieces that they are worth of a permanent place in the home rather than being stored away in a closet out of sight in-between games.
For any one just starting out to furnishing a living dining room, the table and chars might be used for the dining bay. The table will accommodate four comfortably.

These pieces are also available with red or white imitation leather seat covers and table top, but there will be a little wait for there’s as they would have to be ordered. The only color in stock in the blue. Because this fabric is washable the table is especially suitable for dining, though the set would be equally attractive in a sunroom.
The price of all five pieces is only 18.00
