I have a pair of vintage mahogany, kidney shaped Ferguson Bros  accent tables. They have a brass gallery and four reeded legs that have brass capped "hairy paw" feet. Can you tell me anything more about them and a value for the pair.
Thank you kindly.

Answer
most will call these duncan phyfe style but federal is a more descriptive style.  they are mahogany veneer on the tops but i cannot see the grain in the bases.

in catalogs of the time they would have been called end tabled, tea tables or side tables.

they were made between the 1920s-1940.

fair market valuse in as hsop

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.
