Hi,

I have this server with wonderful spindle legs.  It has a Made in Grand Rapids triangle but no other maker information.  Could you possibly tell me who made it and about when?

Answer
This is the only information available connecting your label to a manufacturer.

This is really a cool piece with the upper section and spiral turned legs.  of course, the best part is the puppy!!!!

made in the 1910-20s.  Waxed properly and tight it should sell in a shop around 400-450$.

thanks

hope this is helpful

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.
