Can you give me any information about this table. It is 36" round with a smaller round shelf beneath the table top. I have not been able to find anything similar. I wondered if it may have been a small dining table at one time because the bottom round does not seem right. Especially interested in when it was made and if it has any value. Stickley metal tag is still in place on the bottom
Answer Wanda - The earliest Quaint line of furniture from Stickley Brothers appeared in 1903. It was Mission style with severely straight lines and little decoration. In 1909 the company began to move away from the straight lines and severely straight legs were replaced with heavy turned legs such as are on your table. By the mid 1910s the style softened significantly.
The lower shelf was frequently used by the company on lamp tables. The lower shelf was used for a plant stand or for decorative objects. Most of those tables that I could find were 24 or 30 inches in diameter but there may have been some that were 36 inches. Here is one of those tables with the lower shelf but straight legs. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/9164249
It sold at Treadway Gallery in Cincinnati in 2011 for $1100.
your table is circa 1909 -1915 and would probably sell at auction in the $600 range. You may also want to contact Treadway for their opinion. here is the site. http://www.treadwaygallery.com

Thank you so very much. I had seen the straight leg tables but I have never been able to find one with the turned legs. I really appreciate your response.
