I would like to know what information you can give me on this table. It was my uncle's and he has passed away 20+ years ago.
The table is oval 18" wide x 24" long it has a top lip around the top of table that rises above the table top. It is higher on the ends by about 1 inch and only 1/4 on the sides. It also has metal three toes on each foot.

brand is mersman, they made a lot of furniture

top is mahogany veneer, gallery probably is as well.  base is either mahogany or
sweet gum stained mahogany.  lots of damage to the top but easily remedied.

as it sits retail in a store about 75.

base is called a harp or lyre base.  legs are sabre shaped legs.  it is a lamp or tea table.

restoration would cost about 150-225.
