cannot be dated by the inventory or style number.

thanks for the atdditional pictures.

table is from 1900.  it appears that someone has added the blocks at the bottom of the feet or removed the casters, or both.  please measure the height for me and respond by email again, thanks.

the condition of the base looks good, however the top has some issues.  some poor repairs and the slides under the table has been changed.  I need to see the top of the base with the top opened, Hastings had a particular way of doing that and since there has been some changes i need to see that.

i am going to attach a picture of a hasting mechanism complete, see if it is the smae.

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.
