i have looked everywhere i could find with Google Images.  i have not seen another table like this one i got when my Grandmother passed away. it's always been in the corner covered with a table cloth. The table has not been restored(that i know of) i just rubbed it down with lemon oil to show detail. can you tell me more about the style, era and possible price for something like this?? i need to determine a selling price for the living trust. any help you can give would be amazing.

Table is from the 1910-20s. Probably sweet gum and/or tulip poplar wood. but i cannot see the top to tell if that is the same as the apron and legs.

These were originally sold as lamp or/and end tables.

retail this would sell at 75$ in a shop.

The turned base is called bobbin turnings.

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.
