History

Over time as the more common folk wanted tables and chairs in their dining rooms and living areas the sizes the craftsmen started to create were smaller in size and the families would have these tables in their common rooms for daily use.  They were commonly used as card tables and coffee tables in a wide variety of environments, many smoking houses and bars would use these tables to draw in guests before they were common place.
