Galilee Center was given this pair of beautiful white finish tables with a red label that indicates is real mahogany wood and a 413 number on it. Also has Victorian on it and would love to know more info on these pieces. Thank You

Answer
These were manufactured by the Victorian company in mahogany around 1940-60.  The company made good quality reproductions.  Some were in natural mahogany some painted and others in a clear finish but stained darker.

a retail price these days on these tables would be at 250-300 each unless in a high end store.

They are becoming quite desirable and sell well in retail and auction settings.

thanks

hope this was 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.
