Good evening. I am considering getting this Stow-Davis refurbished for selling purposes.#1.What exactly is it? #2.Do you feel its worth the cost? Thanks for your time.

this was after WW2 up to the early 50s.

if there was never a drawer then it was a phone table.  if it had a drawer then it was an end table.

you would probably get 65-75 at most if you did a super restoration job, so you have to decide if restoration is profitable.

i would say to wax it up and then sell.

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.
