Identifying a Old Oak Trestle Table

Identifying a Old Oak Trestle Table - view showing the legs
Can someone tell me what this table is and when it was made. What I am concerned about is the under table rail supports. I can not imagine they would make an antique table that way other than in the 20th century. I know it's at least 30 years old? The pictures are not great; sorry about that.

This is a Late 17th Century Baroque Italian Trestle Table STYLE (not sure if it is ACTUALLY FROM the 17th century--this is the style). This needs a true professional to look at it!!!!

You mention about it being at least 30 years old..is that how long it was in your family? If it is just 30, then it may still have some value as the STYLE...but clearly not the big bucks of an authentic piece.

If it was a true 17th century piece, it would be worth several thousand dollars in an auction setting...if you find the right setting....since asking price is just what it says....asking...you need to have a market where someone was willing to pay that amount.

Since it is hard to tell from a photo, I strongly suggest you have a professional antique dealer or appraiser come and look at this and determine its provenance. They will need to know as much as you know about the piece...so be prepared to make the time with them go smoothly.

There are a ton of reproductions of this style out there from all decades after the 17th century and up to today. Some have value, some don't. Condition is everything also.

Post back what a pro tells you!! I am hoping it is REALLY good news for you!! If not, it is a lovely piece and a dealer will be able to tell you how much folks are paying for it where you are located!

This could be an antique or a knockoff. You need to look underneath for markings. Then take the pictures to a dealer.

Hi,

I agree, this is a Trestle table, made in the style of the 17th century. It is so beautiful :) I would go to an antique store that sells these types of tables and show them a picture and ask them if they know what the table is worth.
