Question
antique table
antique table  
Hi Robert,

I just picked up this table from someone on Kijiji for free!!! I am so excited to have this piece in my home but I would like to know a little bit more about it.  I think it's a William & Mary style table but I'm not really sure.  Also would love to know what this would sell for if I picked it up in a store.

Thank you so much!

Answer
did you get any leaves?

this is a walnut veneered top and aprons.  underneath is likely sweet gum stained fro mthe factory to match.  made in the 1920s

if it is in good condition, sturdy, all veneer intact and no pieces of wood missing from the legs it would sell at 4-500 retail in a shop

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.
