I purchased this side table at a flea market over the weekend for $20.00.  Can you tell me a little about it?  I like it as it is, but wanted to know more about it before I tried cleaning it up a bit.

Thanks,

Ben

Answer
Hi Benjamin,

What you have is a 20th century lower end quality stylized copy of a 19th century Hepplewhite
work table.  It appears to have been made out of mahogany, painted at a later date
and the bottom drawer brasses have been replaced.

I feel you bought it at a fair price.

Best Wishes,
