I have attached pictures of a table I purchased simply because the wood is pretty and the legs are unique. It measures 48"x32" with a 14" butterfly extension. There are no markings on the underside of the table except a hand-written 221 at each end.
Can you guess at the age and purpose of the table? It seems a little narrow for a dining table but the leaf seems odd for a library table. Also, can you tell the wood type?
Answer Table is from the 1910-1920s and it is a dining table. The woods in the top and apron are walnut veneer, the legs I cannot see the grain clearly are generally sweet gum. Table has been refinished at some time as originally it would have been darker. That does not affect value.
In a retail setting with a good smooth finish and structurally tight it would sell around 450$.
hope this is what you needed.
