Wood grain

Hi, Thanks for the response. You had requested a photo of the table top to confirm wood species. I attached one below.

Also, I know your profile says you don't like to advise on selling prices. But we're curious if you might have a ballpark estimate on value. We're not selling but just interested what value it might have.

Many thanks, Patrick

Answer
you might have my profile confused with someone elses.  i am pretty sure i stated that i would give fair market realistic pricing but would not give "feel good" prices.

that said, it is oak as you said before and in a shop this table, with a smooth finish, would sell around 450/600.

it looks good and the oak is quartersawn oak.

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.
