I also have a similar table that my husband (in 1974) in Gore, Oklahoma as a teen traded labor for a 79 year old gentleman for this table.  It was a gift for my husband's mother.  The elderly gentleman told my husband it had been in his wife's family and that she came from the east. Our table has a hidden gear butterfly leaf and the bottom looks similar to the table shown but the top edge of ours has more detail.  Also we found a number 19 stamped on the inside top edges of two of the pieces of wood that meet the moving butterfly leaf. This could possibly reference a style number?...anyway we would be interested in what the value of this piece might be.  Thank you.  We have been looking a long time to find a similar piece and yours is the first we have seen....thank you.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
