Question
marble top table
marble top table  
Would like to know about this table.  The history I know is that it belonged to an aunt of my mothers and my mom would be 90 if she was still alive. Maker? Year? Value?
Thanks-any info would be appreciated

Answer
a lot of companies made this type of table so without a label or finding a picture of this exact table in a catalog from the 1870-1885 period no one can tell you who manufactured it.  there were about 5000 companies building furniture at that time.

it is walnut and is a lamp table or foyer table.

This one, if it is stable and has no breaks would sell at 850 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.

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.
