Heywood Wakefield tables

I recently found a Heywood Wakefield table on Craig's list and fell in love with the shape and style. It needs refinishing, which will cost about $1000 (according to a local restorer's estimate...). I'm willing to do that cuz the table is a good price - however, my husband pointed out that it is a bit wobbly.

Then, as I was researching Heywood Wakefield I noticed on their site that they manufacturer new copies of the old tables and they say the advantage of that is that they are more sturdy and less apt to be wobbly - so does that mean that the old H-W's have a tendency to wobble and it just comes with the territory?

Question 2: Is this something that could be remedied in the restoration?

Thanks all in advance for your advice! I really love this table, but the DH really has a pet peeve about wobbly tables.
