Identifying a Table

I acquired this gorgeous table at an estate sale, but cannot seem to locate images online to identify the design style/period. It appears to be a library table? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You would have better luck identifying your table if you could find out who manufactured it. Look underneath for markings. This table could be old, or could be a reproduction that was made fairly recently.

It is hard to tell from the photo if this is a true gothic/renaissance Revival piece, which would be from around the 1850s to 1800's or if it is a reproduction piece.


It is stunning!!

If it is a real piece, it could be quite valuable.

You could try to search Google Images for a matching, piece, but I am doubting you will find one.

You would be best served getting information from the estate sale company you purchased it from or if they are not knowledgeable, a real antique dealer may be able to help you learn more about it.

I tend to agree it is a library table. It is fascinating!!

Please post back if learn more from an antique dealer! Thanks for sharing it!! VERY COOL!!!

The table is from a private estate but I might be able to pose additional questions to the family; I will also find a local antique dealer.

Yes, the pics don't do this table is in excellent condition!

Will update when I receive additional information!

Thanks for your help!

This certainly is a fine looking table.
Difficult to determine the size - looks like a library table.
Library tables are usually about 22" - 36" but I have seen some measuring 40" and still called library tables.

  • I found several similar tables but all of them have what is called "dolphin feet" but I still think they are close in age. Check out the links just for kicks:
  • Most of this style tables never had markings (brands) and appraisers have to rely on gained knowledge when appraising this period of furniture.
  • Hopefully you have a knowledgeable person in your area that can tell you about your table but if an appraiser has to pay a visit to appraise it, the cost may be high.
  • Ad

  • I would suggest you have an online appraisal so you will at least know something before venturing out to find an antique store.
  • Table real or reproduction? May have to be seen in person for that information but if you provide several very photos (and dimensions) to an online appraiser they may be able to tell or at least advise you on how to find out.
  • I always recommend Barneby's as I have personally had very good results in the past but they do charge $17 for this service. Of course, I cannot guarantee they will tell you everything you would like to know.
  • Here is a link in case you are interested.
