hi!  I have this table that belonged to my grandmother (maybe her mom too?). It is a 54" round that has 4 leaves to expand to 8'. Very good condition. No manufacture's marking though. I have the protective pads and I can't remember the table ever without them on.

I am looking to sell it, but have no idea how to label it or what it may be worth. Help please?

Answer
although i cannot verify the wood species from the pictures as the glare and distance from the wood grain prevents this.  the table is one made around 1900-1910.  the leags are called trumpet or vase shape and were characteristic of william and mary style.

in my shop i would price it at 1500-2200 depending on how it looked in person.

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.
