drawer

I have a table which has one drawer, sits low, has wheels and is 36" x36".  On the inside of the drawer is a label identifying it as Milo Baughman designs for Thayer Coggin.  I have no idea what it is worth.  It was given to me by someone who was going to throw it out.  I haven't really seen any others like it on line or elsewhere.  Can you help with some history and fair market value please?  Thank you for your time.

Answer
I dont usually do modern items but I like this.  note that the veneer on the face is not book matched but is slip matched, there is a line in the center where one starts and the identical piece starts. <http://www.oakwoodveneer.com/tips/match.html>



here are some sources on milo

and thyer

if this is the style of table that the drawer is a huge one it will retail at 1000-1500 minimum.

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.
