Yes I purchased this antique sideboard from a lady today. I bought it for a steal $125! So excited to refinish it. Was wanting idea on time period it was made and appraisal value.

Thanks in advance,


why would you want to refinish it.  it looks good and has the original finish.

use tolurne fre briwax in a dark brown color first.  should take about 3 hours to wax properly.

made in the 1920s in the jacobean style.  legs are called cup and cover design.

it is a steal and would sell at 650 in an average shop or antiques mall.

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. 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.


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.
