I picked up these 2 pieces today didnot know what I was buying i was going to re finish these for my living room but now i was told not to retouch them but to leave them like they are what are they?

these are end tables made in the 3rd quarter of the 20th c.  as such, to paint or refinish will only enhance them.  because of the burns, if you find them offensive, painting will be the option.

french provincial style.

hope this is what you needed

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.
