Hi Robert,
I have a couple more items that I have questions about.  My Mom described this as an antique Empire/High Victorian style cherry side table from the 1840s.  It has a latch on the underside that allows the table to tilt up for storing against a wall.

What would the value of this be?

need another picture of this mahogany tilt top or tripod table.

with table right side up, tilt the top.  take a picture of the block on which the top rests and the underneath part of the top which the block would cover if the table were not tilted.
need to see both surfaces

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.
