We believe this table has been in the family for about 60 years and it might have come from Europe. My elderly sister will be selling it soon, and I am hoping to be able to give her an idea of its value so she can price it accurately. We appreciate any feedback you are able to provide.
Our thanks to you,
Tina and Marie
Answer these were actually sold in the 1920s as end tables and as lamp tables. Today of course they have many uses including entry tables. This is a good one and i would guess there is a nicely veneered pattern on the top. if that is so then the table would sell at 100-150 depending on the condition. the point of sale is important to pricing. if at a yard sale it would be much less, perhaps half or more but sold from a shop it would sell at the price i suggested above. at an auction probably 65-75$ again depending on the type of auction.
hope this is what you needed to know.
