Question
Table 1
Table 1  

Table 2
Table 2  
We are puzzled by this table.   Is it a game table, something used in a Church, other?   I cannot find any markings.   Does it have any value?

Answer
Hi Stacy,


What you have is a Campaign style dining table for use on a boat.  The lidded
compartment in the center would be used for holding flatware.

It is hard to make out the age of the table but my guess is it is mid 20th century.
