Just wanted to know when the table was made and some history on it.

Albert - Your table is a cocktail table made of walnut. The serving tray became very popular addition in 1933 with the end of Prohibition. The numbers are factory numbers that indicate style and finish. The table would sell at auction in the $100 range.
