My mother recently brought this home after being in our storage unit. It is believed to be her grandmother's table which would date back to the early 1900's. It has a label on the bottom from HP Robertson Co. in Jamestown NY. We were wondering if you know what kind of table it is, how old it is, what the current market value is for it? We adore the table and it is in great condition considering how many times it has been moved. Thank you for any help that you can give me in determining the questions.
Answer it is a sofa table made 1910-1920. wood is probably sweet gum but without a pic of the top i cannot tell for sure. depending on the surface condition and stability it would sell between 150 and 250, The legs might be bolted from under inside. the cross piece may have screws from underneath as well.
