Elmira Table Leaves  
I have an oak dining room table with 3 leaves in an original wooden casing with a tag marked Elmira Table Co. Manufactures of dining Tables Elmira, New York.  This table was my grandfathers.  I am curious as to the value of the table.  In good condition although I think it was refinished on the top.  Attached pictures.  Thanks so much.  Kate

Answer
Nice table, i think it has all been refinished at some time or at least so well kept is looks like it.

probably 44 inches square or close.  in a shop with everything tight and leaves flat and tightly fitted it would sell at a high of around 1200.  in what we call estate condition or found condition at auction 3-500$.

made about 1900.

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.
